Translation I 327
Translation / Twin Earth / PoundstoneVsPutnam Version: e.g. assume there is a text of Schiller: "The Maid of Orleans" - but a translation would be Urfaust - then we could have a slogan: "meanings are not in the book" - Vs: such a translation would not be possible because the word frequencies would give the same pattern in each translation - Solution: Algorithm completely modified the text - N.B.: there is no evidence that the Voynich manuscript is not a translation of a known text.
