Technology has brought us into a world that keyboard replaces pen and electronic file replaces paper. Now, “writing” takes places on computer rather than paper, while multilingual translation can be accelerated by online tools. However, mistakes or misinterpretations made by online tools sometimes become jokes too. Wu’s work Word of the Day.Poem of the Day is a linguistic project based on the research on the origins of Chinese and English words. It is a system to compare both languages. If we trace the origin of Western languages, we will see that the earliest phonetic alphabets also come from simplified hieroglyphs and every alphabet inherits the meaning symbolized by its origin. Now, when we take a look at the corresponding word in Chinese and examine its evolvement, we will see the corresponding relations in between. The artist thus develops a chart of English-Chinese comparison and a word-creation program to design a new English-Chinese translation system for audience to download. The English-Chinese translation system combines interesting terms together. For example, if you key in “ART,” the corresponding Chinese words will be “Bull, Head, Mark” and the Chinese definition is “Bull-Head (a brand).”
