    So you just took it from there? Than you just lost one free line... The idea is that message text should be seperated in some way from the other text.

    And the keywords at the end of the page... They do make a lot of sence-
    Keywords:
    kbacw kbceip kbexpertisebeginner kbhowto kbacwsurvey kbenv kbinfo KB310405

    btw, if the forum administration for some reasons doubts in my translation correctness, the decision to no longer use my assistance is up to them.
    Best regards,
    Nobody doubts it, I believe. Because of some differences in American and British English language, non-americans sometimes misunderstand you. There are some words and phrases which are used only in certain country, so we need to modify the text a little to make it more international.


    Talking about its, it was my mistake. I hust got so used to cat's, somebody's and so on, that used the apostrophe here too. It's just a problem of beeing too clever

    Sorry, not "just". I was researching over the Internet trying to find the most understandable solution to translate these instructions. What could be more understandable than Microsoft' directions? Is that a crime?

    What do you mean by "more international"?

    A little note here regarding "cat's and somebody's". US-EN spoken people may not use the apostrophe all the time even when it's needed. You could probably try to visit some US forums and see it yourself.

    Cheers

    What is used in BBs - not only in US, but anywhere - is not really a language but a slang.

    No it isn't. But Microsoft also speaks American English (that's why you can't do your English homework in Word).
    I meant that you took the instrustion from the site, and not translated it (or edited) yourself.

    What do you mean by "more international"?
    So every English-speaking person will understand it. Not only american one.

    I sometimes spend my free-time on gaiaonline (http://gaiaonline.com) I had a lot of problems with understanding people there (I comunicate with english-speaking people in real-life for more than 10 years). I can tell you one thing about it. This language is not English!!! (the same as language from udaff.com is not classic Russian)

    That is the point! US-EN is a language, moreover it is quite independent. Don't mess it with the classical English.
    You all know the differences, like these ones:
    colour = color (us)
    humour = humor (us)
    etc

    Slang don't have any relation to language at all.

    We're talking about apostrophe here.

    How do you say "by our company policy" or "by our company's policy"?

    American English is all I know, sorry. It is quite understandable to all English-speaking people, but it is hard to say the same about the classical English.

    *not translated it (or edited) yourself

    If you can do better, please do.

    Anyway, guys, we are not going to make it philological forum, are we?

    I already said about apostrophe that it was my mistake.

    I just have an idea of keeping classical English here (even if it is not so independent, than American).

    My open letter to James Blond

    Dear James.

    I've spent about 15 years of my life doing my best to study British English, and still sometimes I don't understand American English. And I hope it's not only my problem.
    You're a proffesional american technical interpretor. I'm only a begginer, but a technical interpretor too.
    The thing is that you quite understand us here, and we are sometimes completely confused by your words. Let us just try to make the forum understandable for everybody.
    I never said that I can do better. I only said that my opinion is different and asked to correct me if I'm wrong.
    *It's a f##kin' team work* (as it was said in one song). Let's try to make something TOGETHER.

    P.S.- my opinion (as ussual).
    Other moderators, admins and everybody else, pardon the rude word, it's just a quote.
    At this very moment, your eternal soul may be less than twenty miles from the burning fires of hell. If you go to hell, be sure - you'll be there forever... (c, Primal Fear, Devil's ground)

    Hi, everybody! It's funny to see how non-native speakers are trying to determine the rules for English usage. I'm sure nobody cares, as long as the support is great... Paul

    Who can read is always in the advantage
    What is used in BBs... is not really a language but a slang.
    BB= Buiettin Board=Forum. Don't mess the languages on the street (in Manhattan and in Queens it's different anymore), in the newspapers, in TV, in movies etc. and in BBs, NG and chat rooms.

    Hi, drongo! Thanks. Yes, I post regularly on the Kaspersky forum with some more general security info if needed. I'm not actually into 'healing' and stuff... Paul

    It is unnecessary to install all possible anti-virus programs and scan your computer.
    I suggest writing
    It is unnecessary to install all possible anti-virus programs, you have to choose one (we suggest using *insert 1-2 fine antiviruses*), update it's databases and scan your computer.
    and after that the text about *help me* section goes...

    I just thought that the original text can be understood like *it is unnecessary to use anti-viruses at all*

    This way it looks much better.
    Um... I deleted *in a case like this* 'cause in other cases you don't need to install all available antiviruses too....

    the same as language from udaff.com is not classic Russian
    Quite a point.
    There are guys, though, with a yet more kinky language.
    Suggest visiting Nag's forum:

    http://forum.nag.ru/index.php?showtopic=34108
    , and other topics around

    Who can dig what they are talking about, please tell us all
