Bad Translator

ackuna.com/pages/badtranslator That site sucks now. https://badtranslator.xyz/ Is an acceptable substitute.

This is a site where you enter text, and it gets translated back and forth until you end up with your jumbled result. I've been having a great time plugging quotes and such into it. Here is a random ambient line I snagged from Lusternia to use as an example:

Original text:

"A flock of birds passes below the platforms, chattering in excitement among themselves."

...10 translations later, Yandex gives us:

"Birds, as a consequence, social assistance. "


If you enjoy bad translations as much as I do, give it a go, and post here if you get any good ones!

    "Blinking slowly, a silver firefly drifts off to the north."

    "Blinking slowly, the silver fire, a dip to the North. "

    These sound like some strange Buddhist sayings.  Rather dignified, if nutty?

    EDIT: Actually, shall we test that?  Here's a Buddhist quote I found here:

    http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/tag/buddhism
    And here's the quote itself.
    "Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.”


    10 translations later, this beauty:


    "Training you received fraudulently. Life should be happy, strangled. Need to relax from time to time to stop and move forward. "

    --------
    "You are so much bigger than you think you are," She says, fervently. "You are a beacon of hope that shines through the world with every step you take. You are My beacon, Gabriella, and you shine even into the darkest of nightmares."
    --------
    The air sparkles with silver motes of light as a silken voice says, "You will see growth and strength where others will see weakness. You will walk with Us as a paragon of Serenwilde's power, for you have already walked this path before."

    "It will be a good thing, your efforts will bear fruit."



    Not too bad. This is probably what transliterated Loboshigaru sounds like.

    Oh, oh gawd. I got curious and translated the translation that it had given me for @Celina 's quote earlier and got back even more fun times.

    ...10 translations later, Yandex gives us:

    "He knew that in the world of designers, thick and hard, in accordance with the rules of the language PKers the messenger of Allah (sallallahu...Geneva-es-Salaam) that he stole the police to help? Sulfur for some people to take up arms! Use a pencil and monsters. "

    ... it... actually really isn't.

    ...N-no, that's not... no!

    So playing with it more, I wondered it I changed the name would the translation change.

    Then I realized I was doing random language order, so yes it would

    so I did an experiment

    "Ardmore smells funny" translated 43 times into "Ardmore smells strange"

    "Shuyin smells funny" translated 43 times into "Really like the fragrance a very strange thing to survive lived lived lived lived lived lived lived ."

    Conclusion - Shuyin smells so bad, some languages haven't come up with words for it yet.

    Good idea, @Erinya! I just did mine, too:

    I haven't technically updated my description since going Kephera but here's mine:

    "It's difficult around Royal blood. kephera spring demigoddess cells, the Queen is ready, and most importantly the confidence of a predator in its natural environment, their relationship, and it should be light and pleasant elasticity. His noble features"

    THE QUEEN IS READY.

    edit: Apparently it has a character limit

    "It's difficult around Royal blood. kephera spring demigoddess cells, the Queen is ready, and most importantly the confidence of a predator in its natural environment, their relationship, and it should be light and pleasant elasticity. His noble qualities and cruel, cold face, pale as marble, and his lips thin and curves, Format, it's just the irony lies in the fact that they gave me, but the seriousness of his character. Long pure white hair, curtains head, body, hands, where, for how long, but the recruitment process. Don't like the marble, the reliability of a man, shave your head, you can tell what's going on, and that his hair was colored in blood red. The right tone, his eyes, the fire, the silence, the anger, penetrating other interesting options.Stood on top of a halo of dark liquid from this is not possible, a black box, on the forehead, and another in the head, and the shadow chrome."

    It's good to know that your relationship is light and pleasant elasticity, too.
