that confirms my suspision that the the un is totally out of touch with 
reality. translate everything to a language that has laws forbidding the 
importation of useful words from other languages (english in particular) 
and then try to translate to other languages. i'll bet that in practice 
the translators go back to the english original where possible to do 
their translations.

hmmm... convert everything to xml even when it doesn't make sense and 
then try to do something with it.
