Dear Zak
I don't think that you should use a translation program to translate Perl Monks articles to other languages. I never see a translation program that worts a penny until today. I think that you shall translate and rewrite articles by hand, using your mother tongue and a second language that you know. If you only know english, please use your skills helping a translator to understand language expressions. This is as important as translating because ensures that translations are exact.

Thank you very much for your interest.
and may the gods bless you.

    Yes, I agree that a native translation is the best. The reason why I brought it up, was because other nodes a while ago about non-english native speakers programming in perl, and I was woundering if a seperate section for each language with a pointer to translated and automatically translated text would be valuable to other native speakers. (For instance, I would not have know what the topic of the node was, unless I read the english version that you linked off of the page, but I could have gotten the gest (probbably) from an automatically translated page.) I realize the 'pure technical' pages may not be translated correctly, but the meditcations could possibly be reasonablly done.
    I appreciate your efforts to translate material and hope you have a good day in Brazil.
    Zak
