The Renaissance is Here for Translation Technologies（二）
Ten years ago, futurists[未来主义者] such as Ray Kurzweil predicted that the devices we carry with us would become fast and efficient at translating languages, and it's happening now. If you haven't tried the translation tools in platforms such as Google Chrome and on Android, you're missing out[错过].
Take a look at this YouTube video, which features a Google engineer demonstrating Google Translate on various web pages writting in non-English tongues. While Google Translate regularly makes mistakes, the engineer's claim that "you can get the gist[要点]" of foreign pages and conversations is true. Google's translation technology for Android is improving by leaps and bounds.
