First, I assume you meant to link to Got to get that Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy stuff spelled right, you know. This thing of crossing language barriers is a whole lot broader than the CAD business, obviously. Online translators are a start, although the results are sometimes barely intelligible in the translated version. Worse, since they primarily take a word for word approach, there is a very real possibility of miscommunication. Language isn't that easy, or the translation tools wouldn't be stuck in such a primitive form as we see them today. Even if we could get past such problems as word order, syntactical arrangement, and which of the various possible meanings to assign to a word in a particular context, we would still have to deal with the idiomatic expressions that are all but impossible to deal with at today's level of translation software. But the topic is a good one, and worthy of further discussion.
