Google Translate gets a bad rep for being inaccurate. However is this accurate? To find out We're gonna play a game. I'll use Google Translate to type out a message in another language and those who speak it fluently shall say what it says. I'll start with Russian


Мне нравится компания Бьюзи в .

Famous computer mistranslations:

The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Водка хорошая, но мясо протухло. (Russian)
The vodka's good, but the meat's rotten.

Out of sight, out of mind.
[Chinese]
Invisible idiot.

Also, the first Italian-Ethiopian war was started over a (human) mistranslation of a treaty, I think they mixed up the words "can/may" and "must/have to" in Italian/Amharic.

(Your sentence: I like the company Byuzi v.)

Sadly I found that google translate doesn't do Klingon. I knew Bing did and thought that since google is so big surely some nerds at the office there had done it...
