Friday/ Bing in China

No, not Bing Crosby, Bing the Microsoft search engine.   The picture is from http://cn.bing.com and is of the Langshan Mountains (Wolf Mountains) in Hunan province.    I noticed one of my Chinese colleagues pasting an e-mail into the Bing language translator.    (Of course there is Google Translator as well).

Just for fun I pasted something I would fire off in an e-mail into the Translator.  I suspect the English comes out translated in Chinese in a similar way it does in Afrikaans : the translator struggles with nailing the right technical terms but brings across the key points of the statement.

English Business area should be a required field on the Functional Location record so that the financial functions on the work order can work properly.
