Internet Translators

Obviously, you (yes you, dear reader) are aware that internet translators pale in comparison to a real human translation. This is assuming the human is familiar in the langugaes, of course.  Otherwise, why would you have them translate for you? Anyways...

That doesn't mean internet translators can't provide amusement. ;D

I came across this site today, called Bad Translator from ConveyThis.com. The text you enter is translate to and from English, with up to 56 different languages. It's similar to Translation Party except it uses languages other than Japanese.

Here's an example using lyrics from Bruno Mar's song Grenade.



Try it! :)
