Babel Fish/Systran is about as good as you're likely to get, and you'd
better have fairly low standards for "good". Actually, in a fair number
of language pairs, it can clue you in as to what the content is, and
at least motivate getting a better translation if you're interested.

In the case above, where English was machine-translated into
approximate German, it's instructive to use Babel Fish to translate
it back into approximate English:

fido7.ru. * Necessities to be translated, in order to read and
communicate too. Which the best technical is translation s/w w/s
plug-in for USENET and reading off and the entry too fido.ru. *?

It's rough, real rough, but if you look it a bit you can probably
get an idea of what the original question was.

Yeah, I agree, babel is a real rough translation. Also, it will go from
Russian to English, but not back again, like the German example.

I'm sure there must be some people who read this newsgroup who also read
the Russian equivalent groups at fido7.ru.*, and I was really interested
in what translation software they use to read and post to it? I would
think a generic translation tool would always be a little rough. But one
that has been tuned for Engineering or Scientific jargon would be much
better.

Also, it seams there is a problem with character sets, with my Linux news
reader anyway. Whoever comes up with the universal translating
browser/Usenet reader has a huge world market for it. Not so much for
English, but for all the other languages out there.

Surely there are others out there who read these groups sci.space.* who
are interested in the Russian point of view of the equivalent groups on
fido7.ru.*? What works best for you?
