To create a program (with any needed hardware) that can translate any arbitrary piece of text from any human language to any other human language.
The criteria here are going to be a little vague, but hopefully we can expand on it.

- An arbitrarily chosen native speaker of the language translated into must not be able to discern that it was a computer-generated translation.
Being right, does not endow the right to be rude; politeness costs nothing.
Being unknowing, is not the same as being stupid.
Expressing a contrary opinion, whether to the individual or the group, is more often a sign of deeper thought than of cantankerous belligerence.
Do not mistake your goals as the only goals; your opinion as the only opinion; your confidence as correctness. Saying you know better is not the same as explaining you know better.
