Google translation

Niklas Jansson pointed out that Google managed to screw up the translation of the Calendar print dialog.

The orientation combo box in Swedish has the choices "Bil", "Stående" and "Liggande", the last two makes sense but the first one translating to Car obviously does not. (The original version says auto.)

Funnily enough, they managed to screw up the Finnish version too, where they for the same alternative provided "Autot" which means "the cars", (while auto might actually have been somewhat acceptable).

Well, you can't always win... :)
