Some years back, I just HAD to have a book that was only available on Amazon.com France. Which is - surprise, surprise - in French. I don't read French (despite three years of it in high school.) So I ploughed through the order by running the text through BabelFish in another window. Worked very well. Then I got to the payment screen, and BabelFish told that Amazon.fr said that my credit card would be processed by their "reassured waiter."
It took a few minutes for me to figure out that it meant "secure server."
You gotta love the English language...
