This is my favorite part:

"On margin so I have run on idea - that (in order to) stick for for fishes by adhesive tape 12 hours shining bait"

I KNEW there was a reason those fish weren't biting!

The translation was pretty bad. Unless you can fish with the mount as well as observe with it. :lol:

It looks like you've got a stepper motor? The "rate corrector" is the box of electronics that drives the motor?

Unfortunately, babelfish.altavista.com doesn't offer Polish to English translation.

In that box there is a driver for the stepper motor. It had to be modified because it wouldn't give accurate frequency in different temperatures. A control device connected to the box is a adjustable quartz generator that overrides the generator in the driver.

I have built all that electronics stuff, but unfortunately I am not yet able to design such circuts, so I have used a friend of mine ideas.

that translating scripts are really bad, they are only translating words, have problems with synonyms and they are not translating the context :)
I have a lot of fun reading such translations from different languages into Polish :grin:

Most on-line translators miss quite a bit of grammar and syntax.

One of the better ones is Systran, but the hi-grade versions are expensive.

That's like translating the sentence "do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art small and crunchy" into Greek, then back into English and getting "beware of the underpant gnomes" as an answer. ie: not a lot of use!

Where was that translater, I'm going to have some fun with it!

It was on Google. It was so bad I didn't bookmark it. Run a search under, "Polish online translator"

Sorry Bartolo, sympathy doesn't work on us...good shots do! From what I've seen of your posts, I wouldn't be too worried!
