But people can write programs in those languages already. The keywords and method names are English anyway. Are you translating method names from Spanish to English?

I agree with what Campbell isn't exactly saying. It would be nice if you told us what your project was supposed to be for, instead of just posting a link to a repository and making us do all the work of downloading it and trying to figure out what it does.

Imagine you wanted to sell your project to a client -- what would you tell them?

I'm not sure, but a quick glance at the project looks like the classical "invisible idiot" style of language translator of legend.

But I'm afraid that Saif's English skills aren't up to clearly saying that. And unfortunately, it takes a much more complex system than his to translate hit message accurately.

Still, Google Translate wasn't created in a day, despite how Management keeps saying that "programming is so simple a child can do it".

There are variations floating around. Since as far as I know, the story is purely legendary (unless it's another one of Frederick Brown's little gems).

Given the original words "out of sight, out of mind", I suspect that the literal Chinese translated words came out to "no see, no think."

I thought “blind and mad” was translated via Russian.

Oh yeah. Now I remember that one.

The original one I heard was a General showing off how their expensive new computer could translate Chinese.

The Russian word "ненормальный" is one translation for "insane", but it's actually more literally "abnormal".

I like the Chinese version better, as it's more credible. "Mad" would probably have to be English, although the joke's old enough that was still a more common word in the USA.
