Abstract : Languages are discussed which are generated by a contextless grammar with semantics assigned to them. For such languages, a distinction between translatability and good translatability is made. For a language that translates well into another language, an algorithm of the translation is constructed. The concept revealed could be useful in the description of the correspondences between artificial languages.
