Also please note that smacking the text through Google Translate is likely to give.. awkward
translations. As far as I know none of the translation projects actually use Google Translate
to do the translations. As one of the two doc_NL members, I can state for sure that we do not
use that. And I would not consider it at all given the … strange translations it generates.
