<G> Just finished rereading an old SF novel in which a young woman tells her modern-civilization husband, who said something nasty to her in French, ".....and just because you didn't say it in Standard English .... you think I don't know how to use a Sony Translator?"

This link to a BBC article on a "universal" ear-bud translator made me
think of several passages from BIA and Diplomatic Immunity. I regret
that my first thought was for the potential humor in such a
translator--it's Miles's fault...
