Journal rRaminrodt's Journal: Yopy vs. English

After reading the article on the Yopy (http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=03/07/09/1349242) and then viewing their site I one again noticed those funny translation-isms you see on a lot of tech sites written by non-native speakers of english. I don't know about you, but I've never called any hardware 'joyful'. :-)

Sometimes I wonder how much it would cost them to hire someone (a kid in highshcool?) to just quickly proofread the site for things that sound funny like that. It would make the site look that much more professional.

PS. This damn postbox is too small!
