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!
