Multilingual people may laugh now

My on again, off again struggles with the Japanese language continue. Yesterday, I spent a great deal of time figuring out that "three ocean electric machine" is not some kind of boat, but rather the literal translation of Sanyo Electric Co., Ltd.'s Japanese name (三洋電機). Which, given that the article was in a business magazine, shouldn't have been a complete shock. Doh!
