DIE HOCHMÜTIGE DOHLE UND DER PFAU

Einst lebte eine Dohle, voll von eitlem Stolz, die stahl sich Federn, die dem Pfau entfallen warn und putzte sich damit. Das eigne Dohlenvolk ver- achtend trat sie in der schönen Pfauen Reihn. Der Unver- schämten reißt man hier die Federn aus, jagt sie mit Schnäbeln. Und die Dohle, bös verbleit will wieder nun betrübt zu ihrem Volk zurück. Die aber stoßen sie von sich, mit herbem Schimpf. Und eine derer, die zuvor verachtet, sprach zu ihr “Hätt’ unsre Lebensart dir vormals conveniert, hätt’st du, was die Natur dir schenkte, akzeptiert, dann wär dir weder jene Schande widerfahrn noch müsstest du zum Unglück jetzt verstoßen sein.”

Diese Version von Aesops Fabel ist aus Wilfried Strohs Sammlung von Übersetzungen von Jan Novák: “Aesopia”, die auf Geschichten von Phaedrus basieren.

Summary

GenuineText is a Swedish system that supposedly offers an English-language version, but which slips back into Swedish annoyingly often. A nice touch is that the teacher can set the status for each report to approved, doubtful, or not approved. The user interface is in need of a thorough testing, we had trouble with windows freezing, information not being visible, buttons missing on a Mac in Firefox that are present in Safari. We were not able to complete the tests at first try, the company said that they had suffered a denial of service attack and asked us to wait a few days. There was supposedly a new version then available, but it would not let us log in. Another new version showed up and had fixed many of the design problems, but the reports were reported as being in progress. That kept up all day, four days later the reports were all finished – and not one reported any plagiarism! We retried a number of tests that the very first test had found sources for, but the new version reported no problems with any of these. On the basis of the tests completed the first time, GenuineText only found 46% of the plagiarisms, which was not sufficient for more than useless. Finding no plagiarism at all is much, much worse. The system may perhaps still be in development, but during the 17 days that we were able to work with the system it was not usable.
