Google has huge volumes of data, which can be very conveniently
used with statistical methods.    (02)

But there are some cases where the frequency-based statistics
will give popular companies some "free advertising".  Their
algorithms occasionally drag in some proper names that have
a high statistical association with the phrases that are
being translated.    (03)

That is an example where multiple algorithms, some statistical
and some semantic, can complement and check one another.    (04)
