DDoug Posted May 2, 2014 Share Posted May 2, 2014 Wangerland is a region of Niedersachsen/Lower Saxony which has now incorporated several separate towns into one municipal entity. If I search Wangerland in Alamy with the language set to English, there are 107 results. If I switch the language to German, the same search has 0 results. Problem is, Germans are probably the only buyers likely to be searching this term. I'm not sure if there are other instances of this, as I've only recently come across it. I have some other related doubts about the effectiveness of machine translation, however. Sometimes the machine-translated term is not one anybody would be searching and it would be better to leave it in the original. The launch of alamy.de in 2011 was an excellent move, but it appears there are still some interlingual bugs to be worked out. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
