What happens when an English phrase is translated (by computer) back and forth between 5 different languages? The authors of the Systran translation software probably never intended this application of their program. As of September 2003, translation software is almost good enough to turn grammatically correct, slang-free text from one language into grammatically incorrect, barely readable approximations in another. But the software is not equipped for 10 consecutive translations of the same piece of text. The resulting half-English, half-foreign, and totally non sequitur response bears almost no resemblance to the original. Remember the old game of "Telephone"? Something is lost, and sometimes something is gained. Try it for yourself!

I must admit this is pretty funny- my sentence was 'I hate those little bouncing balls' (don't ask, lol) and in most languages it got translated to 'Hatred these small spheres of the effect'.. :P
More than once I've noticed how obvious it is when someone is using the translation software of any kind- technology has to progress a lot more before it can compete with language experience..

Original English Text:
Not unlike that episode of NewsRadio where Jimmy James has his book translated in to Japanese and then back again in to English, this application allows you to translate English text back and forth between five different languages. What will be the end result?
