Google Trends haphazardly translates terms

Google Trends is a service from the search giant that allows one to view the most popular search terms, i.a. in different countries. I was accidentally viewing the top terms in Germany in two different browsers, one of which defaulted to an English and the other to a Dutch version of the site. A partial selection of terms were translated into the two languages and my initial hypothesis (that people in Germany search surprisingly often in English) was refuted. At number 23 (below) for example, the Dutch translation appears to be better (at least, more complete) than the English. It is probably worth taking reports about search terms with a pinch of Salz.
