Or, as Google translate tells me "thank you very much for this book in french! Worry we are very grateful. I added tags to be able to find easily."

What, you think we're just going to take your word for it? Worry indeed!

I love machine translation. I should do Dumas as translated by Google. Ooh, now THAT would be abomination.

hee ! acidzebra needs to join the Ministry of Unutterable Silliness.

if acidzebra finds babelfish machine translation amusing, acidzebra also needs to read Mark Twain's translation back into english of a french translation of "the jumping frog of Calaveras county". (i actually made an .imp version of this text but at the time i didn't know how to make any other formats. hopefully one day i will get around to making an epub version at least. this week perhaps.)

personally, i adore babelfish machine translation. i sometimes spend hours feeding it whatever random text i have lying around (for best results, translate, then translate the translation back. hilariously absurd nonsense guaranteed). endless entertainment.

(where it got "worry" in this particular text though, i'm at a loss to say.)

if you ever do make a machine translation of Dumas, please please give me a copy.

Yes, reiteration is key. Google's machine translation is actually too good, the fish is much better at complete mangling.

Babel's English > Dutch > French > English run on the above sentence got me:
Quote:
Yes, the repetition is very important. Google' ; S the automatic translation is to tell the truth too well, is the fish much improve at the time calendering complete.
Google Translate on the same sentence, same language sequence:
Quote:
Yes, repetition is key. Google's automatic translation is actually too good, fish is much better at full mangling.
Wow, that is actually a little creepy. If that keeps improving, I think translators are going the way of the steamboat captains.

"is the fish much improve at the time calendering complete"

brilliant !! see, this is why i love babelfish.

seriously, take a look at that twain text. it's really short (especially if you skip the french version in the middle ; that makes it 1/3 shorter right there), but it is worth the read. trust me.

Lát mint süket. ;-)

This thread genuinely warmed my heart! You might be glad to know that Google now does support (imperfect) translation to and from Hungarian.

Google Translation's take on the first few verses of the Hungarian bible is particularly interesting:

Quote:
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. The ground is bare and bleak was the abyss of darkness, but the Spirit of God hovered over the waters. Then God said, Let there be light! And have been light.
It was BLEAK, I tells ya!
