In the Norwegian area, there seems to be an overabundance of questions which are extremely bad Norwegian, to say the least, and seem to many to be machine translations from another language (not necessarily English). Is anyone else noticing this phenomenon in their languages? Is posting a bad machine translation approved use of this resource?

As long as there are translators willing to answer them... Jun 14, 2002

...these questions will be pouring in. To English speakers, Norwegian is probably exotic in a \"Swedish cook\" kind of way, don\'t you think?, and people obviously like to send each other machine-translated \"encoded\" messages. Helping these kids is not what I\'d call the prime target of the KudoZ system, but if some colleagues have too much time on their hands, I wouldn\'t want to stop them from doing so (I\'ve answered a few of them myself, I believe...)
