I take it to mean that your translation should be correct in the target language and really translate the English original. And I guess a translation in Curse-wordese wouldn't be considered "appropriate" either :))) . As for forbiding automated translations, well to me it's rather obvious (although a Babelfish version of Google could be funny ;)))) ).

LOL! Since they accepted "Hacker", the Maggel orthography shouldn't scare them that much ;))) . Christophe. Take your life as a movie: do not let anybody else play the leading role.
