This reply from Russia is total nonsense, unless "good" means something
utterly impractical. There are many evaluated MT systems that do a
reasonable job (i.e. giving a good indication of what a document says)
and some are available free on search sites as well all know. The
world's oldest and strongest system SYSTRAN sometimes does a very good
job. recommending a 20 word MT system shows utter ignorance of the
last forty years.
