Translation is an old profession, a very old one. Ancient scripts in literature, history, science, philosophy, religion… were thankfully preserved over the centuries due to the good work of many translators from the Middle-East, Europe and other parts of the world. But with the advent of machine translation tools over the web, many today take translation for granted. The field lost its luster in many eyes. If you look beyond the surface however, accurate translation and localization are an art and an important one.
