At least that is what Google says (see the attached picture).

When doing the class diagram for ding_t this evening, I had to use the Google translator once and again since I forgot most of the words I had learned some weeks ago.  And this is what Google translates for one of the comments of the code...  Incredible...  :o

 :D

Edit: now rethinking about your post, maybe you are saying that from your computer, Google doesn't translate that way.  In that case, maybe someone has filled the box "Suggest a better translation" in between...

From my knowledge, German for "false" is "falsche" and "true" is "wahr"

Sure.  The funny thing was that when I asked to Google Translate to translate "false" from German to English, the answer was "true"!!!

I have checked now and it still works and is very strange: if you type "@return false", it translates from German to English "@return false", but if you add the word "wenn", it changes "false" and becomes "true"...  :D

Much on the contrary...  I like it.  It makes Google Translate so human...
