I’m always interested in what technology can do for a human art like translation, and so I signed up for Slate Desktop. Compared with attempting a Moses installation, it’s a walk in the park. For me, the benefits are confidentiality and user control, and I started using it on a real-life project the day after I installed it. The trajectory looks promising and there’s always the happy compulsion to build a better engine. I applaud what Slate Rocks is doing.
