Funny Translator

I got an e-mail from Andrew S. with a link to a concept I had played with a while ago, but forgot about. Fun stuff:


Just wanted to pass along

It uses Google to translate any phrase from English to 56 other languages and back again, with often funny, usually bizarre, sometimes even insightful/ironic results. My favorite example so far is actually someone complaining about the site: "Ok, I'm sorry to be the curmudgeon but I get the translator part, I'm just not seeing the funny part."

...56 translations later we get:

"Oh, Sorry, I know, I think it sounds great."


I tried this one:

"My voice is my passport. Verify Me. "

...56 translations later we get:

"Yu. It. Passport / Embarrassing for them to show."
