Thank you, Story Reading Ape, for providing us with your Monday Funnies – today, once again, with Maxine. How much I love her! 🙂
On the ‘Two On A Rant’ blog, I found these hilariously sarcastic memes. Thanks so much for the giggles, Floridaborne!
And once again, The incomparable humor of The Story Reading Ape, who makes us laugh with Maxine, this week. Thank you, Chris!
Chris McMullen wrote a hilarious post about an experiment with ‘Google translate’. I had a good laugh with that one, Chris. Well done!
FUN WITH GOOGLE TRANSLATE
Google Translate is actually pretty handy as an informal tool.
There have been times where I have wanted to have at least a partial understanding of something that I read in another language online, and Google Translate has helped me with that.
I’m also a little rusty with French, and Google Translate has helped to fill in some of my gaps.
But if you wrote something and wanted to have a professional translation of your writing into another language, well, as you will see in this article, that could result in some interesting consequences.
What I will do is type a variety of expressions in English.
I will copy and paste these expressions into Google Translate, and have them translated into a different language.
Then I will have them translated back into English.
(Isn’t this what everybody does when they feel like having some fun?)
