Language translator prototype is able to read, write and learn in any language.
It is possible because strong AI architecture is language-independent.
Despite the fact that surface concepts are different in different languages, abstract concepts are usually language independent.
Strong AI may know English word “CAT” and Russian translation of this word “KOT”. These two words would be represented in two different surface concepts. But both of them would relate to the same abstract concept #74087, which in essence, represents “cat” concept in strong AI memory. This abstract concept would work as English-to-Russian translation bridge.
In addition to bridges in form of abstract concepts, concepts from different languages may have direct relations with each other (inter-language relations). These direct relations make translation easier.
(Translation from English to Russian)
That would activate “English language thought”.
