Translations are a minefield and a playground.

Google auto translate….. The Road sucks.

I was reading a viewer’s comment under an evocative photograph of a long straight road leading to a cluster of mountains. The comment stated that ‘the road sucks’ I was aghast until I realised that this was google’s auto translation for .. “The road draws you in” which was the intended complimentary comment.

Google auto translate…. Chirping

On a foreign blog site, google translation informs us who is chirping on this account (tweeting)

I think Google auto translate is a very worthwhile and indispensible feature and it also invites visitors to improve on any translations as necessary. In the meantime, If you have any favourites do please add them to this list.
