I read the headlines and some articles in Le Monde every morning, and so I have been getting used to some of the quirks of machine translation. This morning the 'Dutch candidate' had won so I immediately knew that F. Hollande had won the Socialist Party's primary. But the first time I read that the Netherlands had attacked a French policy, I waited for the diplomatic fireworks. It took a couple of days to get my focus on the right topic, Mr. Hollande. After a more than a year of this, I still find articles were I understand nothing - absolutely nothing.
