No apologies necessary, I thought it was amusing. In civilian (non-stamp collecting) life, I work a lot with machine learning systems. It simultaneously amazes me how far machine translations have come, and also how far we have to go before they're even half as good as human translators.

German and English are very closely-related languages with a lot of shared grammar and vocabulary; machine translations between them still sound awkward more often than not. Try it between languages with little or no relation (say between English and Japanese, either direction) and you'll get a bunch of nonsense, usually.
