Language by computer

We are using letter, but it is impossible to translate language by computer. By computer, language is just the rule. And still we are using the computer truly. We do not need to change the computer. And also, we take the rule of computer as the nature itself. It means everything is already done to be the truth.

These sentences don't make any sense. If you're translating from another language, can you try and use the google translate service I linked?

Yes, computers, just like everything else, are subject to laws of nature. After all, it was research into things like electronics, electromagnetism and solid state physics that eventually led to the invention of things like the transistor and CPU architecture.

However, not everything is well understood. There are plenty of unsolved problems in physics.

Computer translation is difficult because the human use of language is complex and nuanced.
Exactly the same word can have a very different meaning, depending on the context within which it is used.
On the other hand many words have almost the same meaning, but with very subtle (often culturally driven) differences of emphasis.

However, Google Translate is getting ever better at producing translations that are at least understandable representations of the original meaning.

Your latter sentences seem to be indicating that you interpret the universe to be deterministic.
Thus, since everything is pre-determined, what is the use of worrying?
This is certainly a valid philosophical view-point, however it is not one that humans generally find appealing.
