pay attention to literal translations!!

Post by giorgiometalking » Sat Aug 09, 2008 9:37 pm

--SORRY THIS WAS MEANT TO BE A REPLY IN THE POST ABOUT TOLKKI IN ITALY!!--

attention!!! google translation can confuse ideas! for example:
"All this took place only days before the date of the show itself."

In Italian he sayd this took place ONLY 1 DAY BEFORE THE SHOW

some literal translation can change sense to statements!

My post is an error, it was a reply to a guy that posted a literal translation from google, to a statement by tollki in italian.
Since someone asked a translation in english, my reply was a try to avoid misunderstanding, with tolkki's words.

If a moderator see this post, can you move it under "an evening with timo in italy"? thanks, sorry again for the mistake!

If there were a Mod, I'm sure they would do it, but there is none at the moment. There was one for a couple of days, a couple weeks ago, but not now. :buh:
