The trouble with speaking a foreign language …

Is that you go to Google and get daft messages like this:

The information you've requested isn't currently available in your language, but you can select from the list below to view this help topic in another language or download Google Toolbar, which can instantly translate websites in 42 languages.

Yeah, the *foreign* language I speak (well loosely), is UK English, of course and, stupidly, I’d just selected that option on the Google+ site. (And, no I can’t download Google Toolbar, ‘coz it’s not compatible with Firefox 5.0)

Pamela is a former accountant, recovering journalist and international cat herder, disabled and chronically sick with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Fibromyalgia and Cervical spondylosis, fluent in three languages; English, Spanish and Rubbish. Mostly writes in the latter. She likes Genealogy, Model Railways and Cats.
