lol, yes. I'm assuming that google gets wahaaay too much traffic to attempt to handle the entire worlds searching without having servers in various locations that are at least semi-close to where the users actually reside. After all; anybody whos anybody uses google. ;)

GOOGLE needs to create an Auto Language converter instead of these diff. logos. The future of the internet is to be able to view anyones page from any country in your native lang.

GOOGLE already has this. But the problem is that in order to translate something accurately, the text and context of the text must be clearly understood. Computers can't do this & even human translators often get it wrong.

I used Google to translate some text from the Information page of cprogramming into Spanish. I then translated it back in to English, the result is below. English to Spanish seems to work 'relatively' well, when compared with English to Japanese.

"Not hardly use a descriptive title ("C "or" C++ "; hágale the specific one). You do not need to write more of a H, and, L, or P in aid, and she definitively does not need to be capitalized."

Would you want your website translated with this sort of ambiguity?


"Before you post, you please read the FAQ of programming, that answers many questions of programming common including how to clear the screen, to stop its program briefly, to generate numbers at random, to work executables, and to exhibit a file of the picture; the FAQ also says to him what to do if you need a file specific head, and how to take care of many other problems of programming. Lightatdawn compiled the FAQ with aid of robwhit, of the light of the sun, and artc. When fixing, it has please presents/displays the principles that follow. If a post violates evidently these guidelines, the post will be cleared. The board is here to help him; the guidelines will help to obtain answers more quickly him. Continue to the board of the message do not hope that somebody writes its whole program. Verify to see if its question has been answered (it uses the characteristic search and it reads the FAQ) Not hardly use a descriptive title ("C "or" C++ "; hágale the specific one). You do not need to write more of a H, and, L, or P in aid, and she definitively does not need to be capitalized. Leave the lie died of posts; top the old messages without a reason or will probably not be suppressed. Fix his code. If you do not have nobodies, asks where to begin; it does not stop anybody writes the program for you please. It does not type any thing in all the SOCKETS. It does not request a personal email - the board will send an email when a post is answered if you wish. Use that and you verify behind when you obtain an answer; the board raises messages. Featuer of the email also will send the text of the answer you. Post once: it does not keep pressing of the post. The duplicates will be suppressed. It does not cross the post; almost each one reads to most of important boards. Be courteous, specially if you wanted that somebody helped him. Remember that the beneficial being does not give to license of being crude. The asked for observations that discredit without provocation and announcements will not be cleared immediately. It does not waste his time, and it does not waste my time."

For the longest time I could not get to google.ca. If I typed .ca I would always get redirected to .com, until recently. I heard google is the most often used serach engine. I find it the best, I dont even use any others.
