I just got my brand new Nexus One (thanks to a friend of mine, ‘cause in Italy we can’t buy it), and since I’m kind of a picky translator that enjoy taking a look at how things have been translated into my own language, I was looking at the Italian translation of my Nexus One.
Well, first it is nice to have a localization even if you can’t really buy the phone in Italy, but there are things that made me laugh. When you add a contact in the Nexus One, you are asked for the “Given name” of that person: in Italian it has been translated a little bit too literally in “Nome fornito”. 🙂 That really made me laugh!
I’m pretty sure that a Free Translator would have never done that! We Rock the World!
PS: does somebody know how Google handle the Nexus One translation? Just got mine, so I’ve not start to look at all those things…
