Too many notes

(Bonus points for getting the movie reference)

I recently sent out an update to my European user base at work, detailing all the progress we've made over the alst 120 days since I moved over. To ensure it reached the full audience, I asked members of my team to translate it into German and Italian (our other two principal languages at Chiron).

One of my translators sent back the translation along with a comment: "In German, we would not use so many words."

That was the most polite "you talk too much" I've ever heard.
