Just for Laughs: Google Translate sings Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”

Just a little Friday gift for everyone.  A hilarious and delightful reminder of why having real, live, human interpreters is so important.

Watch the video here: Google Translate sings Bohemian Rhapsody

Someone “translated” the lyrics to Bohemian Rhapsody into a foreign language using Google Translate, and then “translated” them back into English.  The results are bizarre.

Imagine if this were actual testimony during a murder trial.

Here are just a few of the translation fails:

  • “Mama, just killed a man,” rendered into “Mommy, I kill people”
  • “Pulled the trigger, now he’s dead,” rendered into “My cat died”
  • “Nothing really matters” rendered into “It is major”
  • and many more that make no sense whatsoever!

Obviously, this was done for entertainment’s sake, but the next time someone asks you why the courts/hospitals/schools don’t just use Google Translate, send them this video.

Now turn the volume up and rock out to the utter ridiculousness!
