Writing texts understandable to a computer is a method to add comments and explanations about the structure of sentences and exact meaning of words into the text. The codes are invisible to a human reader unless specifically asked for. In contrast, computers can readily use the codes to make interpretations about which words are subjects, predicates, objectives, genitive attributes etc. In addition, as most words may be used in slightly different meanings, the codes express the specific meaning of the word in that specific sentence. This can be done simply by making a reference to an authoritative dictionary (such as Wiktionary) and telling which of the different interpretations is used in the sentence.
This system could be developed as MediaWiki add-on and as a part of wiki language. It would make it possible to translate wiki texts from one language to another by a computer (such as Google translator) with much better performance than today.
