Translation to English

by

Some chuckleheads keep using Google to translate my blog postings… TO ENGLISH!!! I realize there maybe a grammatical error here or there, but I’m fairly certain my prose still qualifies as English. I do get a kick out of loading up the pages to see how the translator butchers things. I was particularly amused that it translates some of the digits on the calendar to spelled out words, but only some of them.

Anyhow, I understand why people might want to translate to French or Greek, which has happened, but – you English readers – leave my English alone!

    How can you tell? Can you see that in the “referrers” part of your stats? This post made me laugh!

    Crazy Brits: think my English resembles Japanese. 🙂

    That is funny – I’ve seen mine translated quite a few times as well. I love checking the French versions for any errors. Machine translation can make some of the most bizarre mistakes.
