Go to Google, then to the translator, and type in "My mom is nice and cool" and translate it from English to Spanish. Then copy and paste the result and translate it back into English.

Hahaha!

I knew those online translators could be a little dogdy sometimes, but this is just hilarious.

lol... I can't think of a situation where it would be safe to translate "mama" into "breast"... :D score some points for the dictionary writers on that one :p

give proper credit were it is due. This is a Babel Fish screwup. Google just uses it as it;s own like they do with everything else :)

Even more distressing I found is if you put in just "mom" and translate to spanish and get "mama" and then translate that back to english you get "it sucks" :eek:

no it doesnt give the slashing thingy.......in spanish (hope i use the correct word) ' is call accent and what it does is empahzices the pronunciation of the the word......u know is funny casue i try the same sentence bit with dad instead of mom and when it translate it, says papá which is the correct word, i though it will come up with papa which means potatoe.....funny that it only does it with mom........maybe it is because dads doesnt had breast? :p

I only wish I could remember even a sentence to type back :( ... suppose I'm lucky to even be able to say a few such as "what time is it?" and "I don't understand." :p I used almost daily in class hehe.

i'm taking ancient greek right now, and greek is so specific, that if you change even one letter in a word(in some cases) you change the entire sentence.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
