If in addition you failed to consider the extra degree of polish required for a product rather than a mere program, the error could easily increase by a factor of three or more.
Кроме того, если вы не учли дополнительных усилий по наведению лоска, в отличие от простой программы оценочная ошибка может легко увеличиться в три или более раз.

Despite his claim that he “took down every word,” Zacharias must have made this copy after considerable composition; it reflects a polish he could not have achieved on the spot, and contains only one correction.
Несмотря на его утверждение, что он «записывал каждое слово», рукопись, безусловно, подвергалась значительной переработке, так как отличается гладкостью, невозможной при черновой записи, и содержит всего одну поправку.

He said it had been his experience that when women gave surprise parties they usually gave them on the very nights men had decided to polish and clean all the guns in the house.
Он сказал, что на своем опыте знает: если женщины решают устроить сюрпризом торжество, они обычно назначают его на тот самый вечер, когда мужчина решил почистить и смазать все ружья в доме.

"Nothing is more probable," said the Professor, taking off his spectacles and beginning to polish them, while he muttered to himself, "I wonder what they do teach them at these schools."
- В этом нет ничего невероятного, - сказал профессор, снимая очки и принимаясь их протирать. - Интересно, чему же все-таки их учат теперь в школах, - пробормотал он про себя.

Tchertophanov himself--what more can we say?--with his own hands plaited his favourite's forelocks and mane, and washed his tail with beer, and even, more than once, rubbed his hoofs with polish.
Чертопханов – чего больше? – сам, собственноручно, и челку заплетал своему любимцу, и гриву и хвост мыл пивом, и даже копыта не раз мазью смазывал…

There were no stoves yet, and so there could be nothing serious about stove-polish.
Дело в том, что железных печек у нас еще не существовало, и потому о печной политуре нельзя было говорить серьезно.

The woman's shoe adds the so-called French heel to the evidence of enforced leisure afforded by its polish; because this high heel obviously makes any, even the simplest and most necessary manual work extremely difficult.
К свидетельству вынужденной праздности, представляемому блеском, женская обувь прибавляет так называемый французский каблук, потому что высокий каблук явно делает крайне трудной любую, даже самую простую и самую необходимую физическую работу.
