    And UK to German or German to UK is the best of google's translations.

    Sometimes I write something in UK and let Google translate it in Czech. Most people start laughing or ask what the heck this is, then say they do not understand a word of it.

    Just uploaded the operators TM for the M1001, M1002, M1013 and M1014 MAN, 10 Ton tractors. It is very similar to the MAN KAT 5 Ton. The controls and such should correspond to the MAN KAT 5 Ton. Still working on the German manuals. I think I have more success when I upload during the hours you all are asleep. I have been the last few weeks going crazy with US taxes, and Cherry Madness.

    Cherry Madness is when the cherry's are ripe, and you have to pick them. If it rains during that time, fold up the tents and go home. Didn't have any help, so 6-8 hours in the trees a day. If I see, smell, taste or touch another cherry, I will vomit. BUT, I have my 110 liters of mash, and hope its going to be a fine year to make schnapps!

    Translation is tricky.


    The U.S. author Mark Twain made fun back in the 19th Century of translation errors.


    It was about his story "The Jumping Frog of Calaveras County", kind of entertaining:
