I don't think the Internasional thing was intentional. I think it was a spelling mistake. I am not trying to sound pushy or arrogant and I am not trying to set a standard as if mine is better or greater but I must admit, whoever who did the translation did it pretty badly. I applaud his/her effort but if we want to go really and truly International, a standard must be set. My sister found the memo funny not because of its contents but because of the way the contents were presented.
