What would happen if you let a translation tool translate it's own crummy translations back and forth between different languages untill an equilibrium is reached??

Here's a fun link...

Bad translator

It will perform multiple iterations of translations on any random tekst. For each iteration it will go from the starting language (such as English) to another random language (such as Italian), and then back to the starting language. As you can imagine if you do this 35 times the words are bound to get severely altered and you can end up with some funny results.

Here's some I tried:

"A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be. " (Albert Einstein)

...35 translations later Bing gives us:

"We are sure that you do."

Or this one...

"Who, being loved, is poor?" (Oscar Wilde)

...20 translations later Bing gives us:

"Do you think?"

How about our ATS motto...

"Deny ignorance"

...35 translations later Bing gives us:

"The nature of the ban."

Have fun...

Peace

I used this one from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone: "It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends."

And 35 translations later it ended up like this: "Somewhat more willing to participate in the United States."

[color=63BFAA]...35 translations later Bing gives us:

Decided to try again, with a few more lines.

For here, am I sitting in a tin can far above the world? Planet Earth is blue, and there's nothing I can do. Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles, I'm feeling very still, and I think my spaceship knows which way to go. Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows."

[color=63BFAA]...35 translations later Bing gives us:
[color=85FFE2]"It is very important, "tourism".Many of them are unique for each "world" to "national grass and barely 100 (more than 6000 km) pour." Because I think that the heart and not to fall in love with her husband, excelente."

The best part is that it finished off my English result, with a Spanish word.

No wonder there is so much miscommunication in the world. Do not trust online translation tools!!

"I was probed by aliens and all I got was a lousy sticker."

...10 translations later Bing gives us:

"Foreigners, I tested some bad stickers."



I wonder what would happen if you'd combine the power of Bing translation with the nonsense of Cleverbot......that would probably be a very confusing conversation.

"The CIA knows my thoughts also I forgot to feed the cat."

...10 translations later Bing gives us:

"You knew I was in the Intelligence Department of the central United States of America, I forgot to eat cats."

The secret is out. I should have eaten my cats.....
