I decided to do some hubhopping over my morning coffee, and came across a soup recipe. Needless to say, my laptop is now covered with coffee.
The recipe calls for "plain floor" and "black peeper," and requires the reader to "boil water in a cattle."
(Sorry to whoever owns this hub. This was not intended to hurt your feelings. If you would like help with your English, please contact me.)
Least it wasn't boil cattle in water? It must be hard for any hubber who does not have English as their first language (I certainly could not write a hub in French!), are there any tools out there to help translation?
Sounds like they're doing a phonetic translation. The grammar itself wasn't bad -- just the spelling. But it was hilarious!!!
Another example of great written English: 'Personal use of mobile phones is certain electromagnetic radiation, it was still concerned, so a headset way'
Again, no wish to hurt feelings, but this hub was also very short and comprised entirely of sentences that read like the one above. These hubs will be flagged and probably pulled down
