[REBOL] Re: New Q module - Translate

From: rebol:techscribe at: 7-Oct-2003 22:42

Hi Anton. You are opening a delightful discussion. The obvious question is: Correct by what standards? Which standards should we strive for? Is a more "human" software interface one that understands me better (including my ideosyncracies, typical misspellings, and "personal" choice of words), or should we strive for some objective standard of correctness and have the software penalize anyone, who does not adhere to that standard? I think that this is an interesting design decision for any human-software interface that is calculated to interface more comfortably with its users. Any ideas? Elan Anton Rolls wrote:
