Summary/Abstract: Article about computer aided inter human communication, computational linguistics. The author states that the attention has been concentrated on the "hard" and "soft" problems and the aspects that seem collateral have not been taken into consideration enough. These aspects only seem collateral, but they are more than that. She emphasizes the fact that the engineering vision concerning the computer must mean understanding of the fact that the computer is not a a goal in itself, but it is meant as a help for the human. Various aspects are analysed: linguistical and psycholinguistical factors, semiotic and sociological ones, as well as multidisciplinary concerns. Aspects of automatic translation, linguistic models, false humanization and human finality.
