Just because a word in one language means the same as another in a different language, doesn't mean they're the same in both langauges for all meanings of those words. A token in the computing sense is a gramatically indivisable unit of text, which you might misinterpret as meaning something one character long, but it is not the same thing. See here if you're unwilling to take my word for it.

Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.
