I just posted this on another board and thought you all may like a laugh, especially the second translation.
It's great to see your own web site in other languages
I translated an add for one of my bears on my website into German and then copied the translation and then translated back into English, this is what I got.
Katelyn is a lovable little bear. She is made from beautiful pink mohair with a darker pink tip. Her pads are deep pink ultrasuede with toe detailing. Katelyn is fully jointed with a wobble joint at her neck to give her an inquisitive look. She is 11 inches tall and completely hand-sewn, Katelyn wears her very best hat which is adorned with a pretty pink flower. Around her neck Katelyn wears a lace collar decorated with flowers and beads.

She is 11 inches high and completely handgenäht, Katelyn carries her very much best hat which is decorated with a quite pink flower. Around her neck Katelyn carries a shoelace collar decorated with flowers and pearls.
Now read this part, really funny. This is from my own artist profile:
Every bear I make is unique - just as all people are different so too are my bears, but with each bear's individual character you can guarantee there will be a smile on their face.
Every bear which I do is unique - even as all people have passed away, thus also are my bears, but with the individual character of every bear you can assure that there is a smile on her face. :teddybear:
I had no idea that my bears had such a profound effect on everyone but it sounds as if my bears went happily as they were smiling!
Oh, that's so funny, especially your profile bit. :lol:
I have seen auctions on ebay UK listed from somewhere in Europe, Germany I think. I think they have just used one of those translation sites but not checked it back again to see if it makes sense. They are quite funny to read and sometimes include minor swear words!!
