More Funding for Foreign Language Project

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency  has given millions of dollars to a company in Cambridge, Massachusetts, to work on a special language translation program to help create a software that can “transcribe, translate and distill large volumes of speech and text in multiple languages.”  When the program is complete, it is supposed to help American analysts “recognize critical information in foreign languages.”  Sounds like a good idea to me.  The full story can be found at http://www.upi.com/Business_News/Security-Industry/2010/06/23/More-funding-for-language-project/UPI-43591277317390/
