SignWriting List
December 30, 2000

Hi Bill!
I just did exactly what you said....it worked well in general,
although the translation itself is quite poor. Take a look at the
opening phrase on Stefan's site....

The German says this:

"Hallo, herzlich Willkommen bei GebärdenSchrift in Deutschland."

AltaVista's translation from German to English says:

"Hello, cordially welcomes Bearing writing in Germany."

It probably should be something like: "Hello. Welcome to SignWriting
in Germany."

I guess AltaVista didn't know that GebärdenSchrift means SignWriting
- ha! SignWriting is "Bearing writing" smile....
