    Computers to translate world's 'lost' languages after program deciphers ancient text

    Computer program translates ancient language | Mail Online

    Scientists have used a computer program to decipher a written language that is more than three thousand years old.
    The program automatically translated the ancient written language of Ugaritic within just a few hours.

    Scientists hope the breakthrough could help them decipher the few ancient languages that they have been unable to translate so far.

    Ugaritic was last used around 1200 B.C. in western Syria and consists of dots on clay tablets. It was first discovered in 1920 but was not deciphered until 1932.


    Asteroids are nature's way of asking "How's that space program going?"
