PostSubject: Bad Translator   Thu Sep 01, 2011 1:02 am

If you want to sound like you have no idea what you're saying, use Babelfish to translate pieces of text. Being on the Internet, you've probably encountered some fairly terrible translators before; you enter in a fairly simple sentence and then translate it back from the language you're using and it seems to look like nothing you intended. While, as noted, Babelfish gets a bad rap for being one of the worst, Google's and Bing's services are slightly better, but only marginally.

Using Babelfish to see what you could eventually get out of the site's terrible service was fun, wasn't it? Sort of like a bad translation version of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon - see how far you can get from your original sentence by using multiple languages then putting it back into English. Well, guess what? There's an entire site dedicated to that concept using, as noted above, Google and Bing (or both).

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

But in a piece of text up to 250 characters long, select your translation service, the number of translations and bam, instant funny stuff.

To start off, let's do some famous movie quotes (from AFI's 100 Greatest Movie Quotes of All Time:(

1) "I'm king of the world!"
-Jack Dawson, Titanic (1997)

Google and Bing says that becomes (after 10 translations:(

"God is my world."

2) "I'll get you, my pretty, and your little dog, too!"
-The Wicked Witch of the West, The Wizard of Oz (1939)

Google and Bing says that becomes (after 10 translations:(

"It's good and my dogs!"

3) "Nobody puts 'Baby' in a corner."
-Johnny Castle, Dirty Dancing (1987)

Google and Bing says that becomes (after 10 translations:(

"We love penny two sons."

4) "My mother thanks you. My father thanks you. My sister thanks you. And I thank you."
-George M. Cohan, Yankee Doodle Dandy (1942)

Google and Bing says that becomes (after 10 translations:(

"Father mother wanted to say thank you thank you thank you. Thanks to my sister."

5) "Snap out of it!"
-Loretta Castorini, Moonstruck (1987)

Google and Bing says that becomes (after 10 translations:(

"No!"

6) "Carpe diem. Seize the day, boys. Make your lives extraordinary."
-John Keating, Dead Poets Society (1989)

Google and Bing says that becomes (after 10 translations:(

"Carpe diem. Every day, people use it. Income is high."

7) "I feel the need - the need for speed!"
-Lt. Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell and Lt. Nick 'Goose' Bradshaw, Top Gun (1986)

Google and Bing says that becomes (after 10 translations:(

"I think that it is necessary for Need for Speed!"

Cool "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death!"
-Mame Dennis, Auntie Mame (1958)

Google and Bing says that becomes (after 10 translations:(

"Life is a banquet and most poor and hungry sucker!"

9) "Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac...It's in the hole! It's in the hole! It's in the hole!"
-Carl Spackler, Caddyshack (1980)

Google and Bing says that becomes (after 10 translations:(

"A Cinderella Story. Places to go. Former Masters champion greenskeeper now. She did not seem to know ... There is a difference! There is a difference! There is a difference!"

10) "Who's on first?"
-Dexter, The Naughty Nineties (1945)

Google and Bing says that becomes (after 10 translations:(

"Who was the first time?"

So everyone, what can you come up with? [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]lol

Heh, I had a go with it, and here are the results -

"The cake is a lie!" becomes "Bethlehem is false!"

"Where there's life, there's hope!" becomes "Don't have any hope for a life!"

"Will it fall......that thing" becomes "Anthony Wong" scratch
