"It calls itself government inspection department Stash Hunting"

Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm just easily amused, but I love babelfish translations.

 

If you're also easily amused, run the german cache note (http://www.geocaching.com/articles/cachenote_german.txt) through the translator at http://babelfish.altavista.com/ for a chuckle.

 

"The government inspection department Stash Hunt is open for everyone with a government inspection department and something sense for adventures."

Neocacher: What does GPS stand for?

Old-hat: Government Inspection Department, of course.


Of course, you can also use Google's language tools, and they even let you direct-link to the translation.

 

Hmmm... new cover story for geocachers: "No, sir, I'm from the Government Inspection Department and we're in the process of inspecting the area."
