Bulgarian Invents Unique Translation Method

from Sofia News Agency

Very short on details ("Koycho Mitev's invention uses digits to record speech and automatically transfer it into whatever other language") and I'm afraid I'll believe it when I see it.

From what it says here, it might be a variation of a word for word translation: "word = n. 23 in English, n. 23 in Italian = parola".

For a short review of the book, see this previous entry.
