    And, a translation program converted the Russian for "hydraulic ram" to "wet male sheep" in English, much to our delight.

    Sort of reminds me of the newspaper that attempted to correct a typo:"We apologize for the statement that Mr. Jones is a defective in the police force. We should have said that Mr. Jones is a detective in the police farce."

    Well, I'd like to thank everyone for helping me understand what Kaliumsulfit is (even if I'll have a hard time finding it), and I'm glad my thread gave all you German linguists a chance to trot your stuff! Can't speak a word of it myself, despite being 3/4 German in terms of lineage. French, yes, Arabic, some, German, zilch (which, for all I know is a German word -- sounds like it to me!)

    And a propos of nothing, I read a good spy-type book a while back, with a title something like "the windows of Lisbon" or some such, in which the plot circulated around German military efforts to get wolfram from Portugal to Germany during WWII. Prior to reading this, I'd not know that Portugal was at that time a source for tungsten -- assuming the author didn't make the whole thing up!
