Babelfish discrimination

I'm trying to write an email to a friend in Paris.
I tried to use Babblefish to help out.
This is a website that roughly translates between
different human languages.
One of the sentences in my email was:
"I am in Pittsburgh." Even I know
how to translate this one. Babblefish returned an
error message. Three times. Then I tried changing
"Pittsburgh" to "New York" and it worked perfectly:
"Je suis à New York". I tried some other cities too.
You can even say you are in Newark.
