It's pretty cute, but remarkably quirky. I just tried the English to French
conversion (one of the few whose accuracy I can evaluate) on my own
homepage and found particularly surprising the rendering of my "Fall" and
"Spring" term courses as those for the "Chute" and "Spring"

I did the same with German and my home page. Lots of glitches, but
generally comprehensible. The name Bill was translated to Einladen.

The same thing can happen in low-tech circumstances. A German artist friend
wanted us to see the "blanket" he had designed for the new conservatory. I
was baffled until he showed us the Decke, the ceiling.
