The translator an animal endowed with reason

The AI, Artificial Intelligence, has made translation accessible for most of us. It is no necessary to master a language, now it is enough to select a source language, a target language and the fabulous algorithm pours us the thousands of signs creating the words that chained to each other will become sentences. Translating in the Internet age and Google Translate has become child’s play.and yet!

Translation is a complex phenomenon, it is the meeting of two languages, two thoughts, two cultures, two beings. The translator can only translate with what he is intrinsically, his history, his emotions, his morals, his ethics, his deontology. However, AI is not yet endowed with reason. It works in a very different way from human cognition. AI is not able to express and understand emotions. It is just the product of man, fed by men while translation is a mental process.
