google translate discussion

Post by Expresso » 25 May 2015 19:10

The object of this game is to simply discuss anything and everything, but your addition to the discussion is translated into English by a translation service (like google translate) from your mother tongue or another language that you speak.

This post has also been translated with google translate. There must be worse to find translation services that can cause even more chaos. If you know one of which, post here so it can be used by others to also post here.

The intent is to uncorrected translation into English post here. I purposely did the mistakes the translation service did not put out. So what you read can sometimes do not match what is in the original, untranslated version.

Yes, but this can probably be a little exciting. Translating via Google Translate from Swedish to English tend to usually be quite readable. Sometimes it gets a little småtokigt however. How do you think it will go for me?

Very nice is translating from Latin to German, because at the end you have a mix out of Latin, English and German. I think it works with Swedish, French etc., too.

Serbian Google translator is quite unusable. I compared it with Slovenian (which has similar grammar), where translation is very good. Explain that. :P

Maybe the Japanese .lng file is google-translated.
It is so strange and too funny!

On-Topic :

Too bad our everyday language uses a lot of word uptake. Particularly in online use, many use mixed English. The phrases I use here may also be less precise in the standard language.
If there is anything to be proud of, spelling in our language follows international standards!

Original :
[+] Spoiler
Sayang sekali bahasa sehari-hari kami menggunakan banyak kata serapan. Terutama dalam penggunaan daring, banyak yang menggunakan bahasa campuran inggris. Kalimat yang saya gunakan disini juga mungkin kurang tepat dalam bahasa baku.
Jika ada yang bisa dibanggakan, pengejaan dalam bahasa kami mengikuti baku internasional !
Google have actually improved their translation, but put one word/form off and it will crash I guess.

It couldn't be edited by text editor like gedit.

Google translation is a very good service, I wonder why the world takes it that it translates badly, that it does not do well with some languages, that I still know what; no, Google Translate is a free and quality service, I wonder how they did not make money ...
