You don't need to know anything about a language to translate it, Google showed today (Thursday) at Google Factory Day, a press event on the company's campus in Mountain View, CA.
The company's research arm has come up with a technology that does translations for foreign language documents, based entirely on a computer analysis of that language. The research project uses a set of identical documents, one for each language, and through a analysis determines what's the best way to do the actual translation. The result, as the picture below shows, is more accurate then current generation technologies.
