 Yes, and during that time, you could have:
 a) Gone to CompUSA and bought some translation software.
 b) Installed Windows and Office XP.
 c) E-mailed some friends in fluid Spanish/German/Italian.
I've used translation software. I live in a country that has three official languages, one of which is not supported by any translation software that I have found. Of the languages that are supported, the translation is -- at best -- a joke.

It might give you kinda-semi-sorta an idea of what the other person was trying to say. However, if you try to use it to translate something that you have written, it doesn't come anywhere remotely close to producing something that you would ever want anyone to see.

Trust me. I only ever used it once or twice, and then I got laughed out of the building.
