Cool. Thanks a lot for the links. =) So what sort of linguistic model are you using for your engine?. Babelfish appears to be a mix of ideas, but a project with a similar name, Babel, uses HPSG (Head-Driven Phrase Structure Grammar)

Speaking of Babelfish, I'm about to become famous, at least locally. The German radio show Wortlaut will at some point have a contribution from Max Schönherr, who did some interesting, funny stuff with Babelfish and Systran. Anyway, my colleagues and I are going to be on the show (reading stuff---don't want to ruin the surprise).

I dabble in Ruby myself, so I think you might not be giving it a fair shake, but really anything you can do in Ruby, you can do in Perl---just in a different way. Anyway, there is no Ruby Monks.

    I'm a bit of an amateur at linguistics, but... I'm taking a top-down interlingual approach. That's about all there is to know, at least right now.

    I think part of my beef with Ruby may have been that I didn't have enough experience in it. I've found Perl much easier though... especially when you get to difficult problems. Also, perl is quite a bit faster than ruby is.
