By the end of the year 2015, there will be a program which can translate written material into English from one of French, German, Russian, Japanese, or Chinese. The program will work well on ordinary non-fiction prose, newspaper and magazine articles, ordinary non-legalese business letters, and scientific and technical writing. The translations will be of comparable cost and turnaround time, and equal or better average quality, as professional human translations. Source text may be entered in any convenient way -- this isn't an OCR Claim.
I will judge based on the wording of the claim unless it is found to be ambiguous. Such ambiguities will be resolved based on my perception of the author's intent.
I interpret "Comparable cost and turnaround time" to mean equal or lower cost and turnaround time compared to typical human translation services.
