I was trying to point a friend of mine to http://librivox.org today, and for some reason he couldn't connect to it. The quickest way of finding a proxy he could use was via Google Translate (he's Polish). When I looked at the page, however, I say that the phrase 'some free software' (in refernce to open source software, such as Audacity) had become 'niekt√≥re wolne oprogramowanie *rejestrujące*' - 'some registered free software' - which makes me wonder if Google's next service will be nagware.google.com :)

I meant 'saw'... I really shouldn't go around knocking their translations if I can't even get my primary language right :)
