    I just love the Eng to Rus translation

    Went to Komandirskie.com site. East? Yes i know Vostok means east. But "In garbage" for in stock? Funny. "How do you like my new East watch? It was in garbage at Komandirskie.com."

    .
    To say that some Russian sellers need better marketing techniques to target Western customers - this would be an understatement.

    It is clear translation sabotage. There is no way that shopping "basket" (direct translation of the shopping "cart") could be translated as a "garbage bin".

    Would you allude to undetermined country's interference in the Russian watch selling process?

    Everything is possible nowadays. Sergey Brin is speaking Russian at home. So he knows...

    Have you submitted a correction to Google Translate?

    The problem appears to be entirely due to context i.e. a word has been assigned a default meaning where the context cannot be discerned by the programme. Given the ubiquity of on-line commerce, 'Basket' would be a better default than 'Garbage'.

    I was joking about this to a friend last week. Likely the better translation is “bin” or “basket”, which google is taking to mean “waste bin” or “waste basket.”
