Google Translate is broken, or at least the Russian translating part of it is.

The inability of Google Translate to faithfully translate from Russian to English is so infuriating at times--I don't know how Google can present it as a viable translation service.

I saw a headline this morning, and, since my Russian is a little rusty, accepted Google Translate's offer to translate the page.

The title in Russian:
К губернатору Белых пришли люди в масках

An okay translation (mine)--same word order:
To Governor White came people in masks

A better translation (also mine)--sounds better:
People in masks came to Governor White

Google Translate's translation:
White came to the governor by masked men

What really gets me is that Google Translate lets you offer an alternate translation, but anyone suggesting a better translation is tied down to the word order used by Google Translate in the initial translation, even though it may be wrong.

I've previously written to Google about this issue, but have yet to hear anything back.

Google, возможность переводить правильно давай мне.
