Oops – Google gets it Wrong

I’ve been using Google translate for a while, it’s a simple interface but reasonably good for translating bits of text. One of the cool features is the ability to submit a better translation which is then used by Google to improve the service. When you submit a translation you’re told that it’s getting checked, which makes sense – someone needs to make sure you haven’t spelt it wrong, or worse.

But take a look at this – seems like not everything is getting checked properly. Of course, aside from the annoyance of the translation not being helpful, one has to ask what on earth the person who suggested that would get out of it – I mean, there’s no link or anything like that, it’s just a bunch of letters. No doubt some pimply greasy schoolboy somewhere is getting his jollies over that one!

Tell me what you think
