Fight FUD?

Paul Venezia wrote an article in English, which got translated *very badly* to this article in Dutch.

It is quite obvious "wrong", though the English article still makes sense - from the author point of view - but the Dutch article misses every single point entirely.

This sucks badly. Don't know what to do about it.

Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    Do you know any Perl programmers or translators? Ask them to comment on the article.

    If you know that the translation is bad, perhaps suggest improvements (or point out the flaws) where necessary to the author (so that he's aware of what's wrong) and to the site. Just a thought.

    LOL, I think it is actually an improvement over the original article, if the google translation of the dutch to english

    The absurdity of the article is exaggerated
