Sorry it's taken a while to get back to you - I'm sick. Nothing serious.
I went back and double checked and found I DIDN'T have translation
turned on, it was something I had meant to do but forgot. I'd also
meant to turn comments on but forgot.
So I went to the Google help and could find nothing more about it-
near as I can tell it's not something Google is doing, but of course
I'm not sure. After reading your post I'm not sure I will turn it on
as your pointed out things I hadn't thought of.
