It is ilweys useffool to look it some-a poorly formooleted oobjectifes und work from zeere-a. Bork Bork Bork! So here-a ire-a some-a ixemples:

Disconnected from reeleety

“Oooor goel is to insoore-a zeet people-a who speek Iestern Blowffish coon use-a compooters in zeeoor mozeer tongooe-a”. Zee-a Iestern Blowffish teem zeee-a decides to locelise-a GNOME. Howefer, zee-a reelity in West Smedboorg is zeet people-a use-a Windows und ind-users hefe-a not idopted Linoox in uny greet noombers. Bork Bork Bork!

So reelly his oobjectife-a wes: “I woont to locelise-a so zeet my mozeer coon imeil using GNOME in her mozeer tongooe-a”. This is a perffectly felid goel -- joost don't conffoose-a it by seying yooor doing it for iferyone-a. Bork Bork Bork!

“I troonsleted my Linoox distribooshoon's insteller becoooose-a zeet is where-a people-a stert.
