  1. Great little add-in. I love that you can add that to Slack so easily.

    Out of curiosity, do you know how Watson Translation Services compares to Google Translate?

    1. What took my attention was the translation of “hot sauce” into french:
      Watson: sauce chaude (which actually means “warm sauce”)
      Google: sauce piquante

  2. well, let’s say there is room for improvement 🙂 If Watson is self learning, thinks like this should be easy for him to correct.. language translations are far from logic, and this is where a self learning system can benefit.. will do some tests with using Watson in my applications in the near future and look forward to it..
