I thought I learned in CS 101 that creating a universal language wasn't
possible, because (for example) to describe the difference between two words
in Yiddish could take a couple pages of English text.

Or am I just being pessimistic?

The translation system being developed for the United Nations, the Universal Network Language (UNL), looks quite promising. Does the IETF have any plans regarding this system?
