Description

The Wall Street Journal reports on the attempts of some foreign-language teachers to discourage the practice of their students to use free translation sites, mostly Babelfish.altavista.com. The story finds that "cheating is often detected because the software powering the sites has among its faults a tin ear for idioms." The author concludes that despite teachers' efforts, "online translation won't be expelled easily from U.S. schools."
