This Is the Perfect End to My Week

From Agence France-Presse:

Amazon on Friday yanked gibberish translations of classic works from the shelves of its online ebooks shop.

An array of titles including Treasure Island and War of the Worlds billed as translations of famed books into French, Italian, and Spanish and offered by an “M Angelo” for 99 cents each were gone after complaints that they made no sense. [. . .]

The digital books appeared to have been translated using the kind of automated program available as a free service online.
