Hungarian Translation Please - Steven Colbert Bridge
Edited on Wed Aug-16-06 02:46 PM by rabid_nerd
Back on August 9th, Steven Colbert talked about the Chuck Norris option at:
http://www.m0hid.gov.hu/vote

So I used rudimentary translation tools online to translate this page:
http://www.m0hid.gov.hu/regisz

And I submitted "Steven Colbert" as the Name of the bridge, taking care to make sure I put my name and his in the right boxes, and the "reason" being the truth - US Television Peronality, I put down using grade school english passed through the online translator.

I got this Response:

The basic tools online make it read like "Dear maam or sir, thanks the name has been added, you can vote for it once per day, sincerely so-and-so"

He got 30,000 votes in 10 minutes.

On edit: He's now up to 438,000 votes. Wow.

He wasn't doing so good by telling everyone to vote for him when he wasn't even on the list at first...

4. He's more than made up for it.
He was at 10,000 votes before I voted last night, 40,000 after and now he's up to 438,000. If everyone votes once a day for just a week he'll be way ahead.
