I suppose the translation would also have to get the semantics right.
COBOL provides an even bigger scope for confusion (doesn't it always?). Image
translating STRING as TWINE or ROPE or FLEX or CORD? the program could very
quickly become meaningless (more so than they normally do).
It's very much like the 'see no evil, hear no evil' translating as 'invisible
'I think the problem lies in the fact that your data
doesn't fit my program'.
