Would Someone Donate a Dictionary to Google?

It annoys me quite considerably to see the abuse of the words “temporarily unavailable” when I try to login to my Google AdSense account to see the results of the day.

Please note the words that fly in your face when you want to login:

The Google AdSense website is temporarily unavailable. Please try back later.
We apologize for any inconvenience.

Please try back later” sounds like double-negatives or an Indian who brags “we are one of the leading”…. How about using “Please try again later” or “Please come back later“?

I won’t even begin to describe how awful both the German and French texts sound, but couldn’t Google afford a team of translators to do their job or are people paid so poorly in Ireland that it becomes impossible to find someone who actually SPEAKS and is WELL-VERSED in either German or French?

Come again, boys. I know you could do far better!
