Google Translate

Find something in a foreign language and use Google Translate and laugh about how awful it is. Its pretty easy to do if you use Google Chrome. Just go to a site in another language and select the translate to English button when it pops up (options - under the hood - check the box that says to offer translations). I think you can also use the main google.com to translate pages as well. If its a language you know, give an explanation of what it should be and list possible reasons it got messed up.

Horrible Burger King Website Translation (*)

For the Google Translate Fail assignment, I stumbled upon a Japanese Burger King website and translated the only parts of the site that werent images (since Google Chrome cant translate those.) This is a screenshot of the bottom of the home page.

Google Translate and Sony

http://www.sony.jp/
I chose for this assignment to get Google to translate Sony’s Japanese website.  This actually didn’t yield as much as I’d thought–it turns out most of the Japanese on the site was actually embedded in images, but it did result in some strange textual failures.
For example, does anyone…

Kenan Do?ulu is Bob Marley….

At lease according to Google Translate.  This is Google’s translation of Kenan Doğulu’s Turkish Wikipedia page.   Translation: Bob Marley (May 31, 1974; Cihangir , Beyoglu , Istanbul, Turkey ), Turkish musician.

I do not want to kill you I want to help you

I was curious about the Google Translate Fail assignment. Is this something I would need to be bilingual to do? I only speak English, and I’m not as good at that as I should be.
