- Most languages are like this. Translators are not accurate. I do a little german and when i translate it to english with a translator it does not come out properly.
If i were to right this in a translator it would be completely different to the way polish people actually say it..

Other languages - Just keep in mind that you can go to other places in the country and run into the same problem. If you went to Kentucky and asked for a Coke they would ask what kind because to them all sodapop is Coke. In newengland if you asked for a rubberband they would not know what you were talking about because they call them an elastic. In Spanish if you want to say that you are hungry you say I have hunger. Words are just representations of ideas. You can't translate any laguage word for word because you have to translate the idea not the words. Ihope this helps.
