Reminded me about another thing...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AI_winter#Machine_translation_and_the_...

An anecdotal example was "the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak." Translated back and forth with Russian, it became "the vodka is good but the meat is rotten."[8] Similarly, "out of sight, out of mind" became "blind idiot."

(though I'd say those examples don't so much show problems - but are more like eerily brilliant, in context ;p )


Also, about the possibility of this ornacle thing in my language - now that I thought about it a bit more, I suspect it still would be more time-rewarding than following usual news...
