Translation error in Mongolian Windows 8.1 interface

When you copy a big file from one location to another you can see a dialog box:

The word "about" has at least two widely used senses:
1. approximately
2. regarding

In Mongolian version the word "about" was translated into "тухай" which is the second sense. It makes Mongolian users think about philosophical meaning of seconds or time. :D. For me I remember about the book by great scientist Stephen Hawking "A brief history of time".
