Below are comments on the job done by Google translate from the photographer who took the picture. Posted with permission: Google didn't do a bad job of the translation, considering it's a machine. There were a couple of things that made me smile: "snatched pylon pictures" became "photos des pylônes arrachés", which means photos of pylons that have been torn from the ground. That would make an interesting picture! You could say "photos de pylônes prises à la volée". And "pylon spotting" fooled Google into thinking you were talking about spots as in stains ("taches"). "La chasse aux pylônes"(pylon hunting) would be perfect.
This blogpost by Alice Bell at Imperial College is a reply to the issues raised by Julian Huppert. http://doctoralicebell.blogspot.com/2010/08/myth-of-scientific-literacy.html 'Scientific literacy' is yet another one of those catch phrases that is easy to say but understanding what it means, never mind doing something about it, is much more difficult.
