  1. The problem with machine translation, supervised or not, is that it doesn’t get the context of the content, similar to the grammar check. A fluent speaker in any language would see that immediately – I am constantly aghast at the so-called grammar corrections, as well as translations.

  2. I’m with the more data needed. Interesting experiment.
