Google Engrish

Google has a new "privacy" policy. I just signed in on my laptop and a page in Thai about the policy came up. I hit "translate" and was treated to some good Engrish:

Actual quote cut-and-pasted from the Google page: "We quit using Google Privacy Policy across more than 60 of the policy by switching to a shorter and easier to understand than most. Our new policy covers a wide range of products and features. This reflects our desire to provide a simplified user experience across elegant, intelligent and Google."

If you speak native English, if you learned it from your mother, you should thank your lucky stars, because it is a lot harder than it looks.
