Read my blog in chinese and french language!

Since I couldn't read my own blog in China, I'm happy to discover that some people are reading my blog in Chinese language! I found the french and chinese translations of my blog when I looked through the referals to my blog. Both persons used google translations. I can't say anything about the quality of the chinese translation. The french translation of the heading is quite good, but the quote has become really hard to understand because I used a Dutch text...

OK. You want to know how good is the Chinese translation? Apparently it is a blog about drinking coffee or, tea or cocoa???

Translation is terrible. The blog is from 2006, June, 27. It also mentioned something about cultures as well.

It would be interesting to know if this person carry on reading your blog since then.

Hi Cindy, great! So the translation is terrible. But is it readible?

Actually what happens is that a person googles on a topic and finds this (old) blogpost. So it is not a person who subscribed to the blog (I guess)

Happy Birthday, Joitske!! I've been having some strange creatures blog my blog, too, and have it translated(google-wise) in French, and Chinese, too. Don't know why anyone would want to have it translated, but I am sure I know why people want yours!! Quality stuff. Google appears to be the optimal choice. As to optimally qualitative is another matter!!
