When you read foreign web pages do you rely on Google for the translation? When you travel abroad do you fumble with phrase books? Or do you fall back on the old reliable method of assuming that the waiter is deaf and shout a lot?
C'mon! This is the 21st century! You need a translator machine as big as a marine diesel engine and festooned with all sorts of cams, rods, drums, and flywheels, a speaking tube the size of a fire hose and, of course, a huge control knob.
Now that's technology!
