Google Translate

posted in Internet |

Could anybody explain what’s going on with Google Translate ?

Try translating “sarkozy sarkozy sarkozy”, “sarkozy”, “chirac” or “sarkozy is chirac” (without the quotes).

Later update: Seems they fixed this after about 48 hours. Here are the screenshots:

    Yeah… “fixed” they probably noticed some traffic coming from here and they investigated it? Very suspicious IMO :/

    It’s not all that “mysterious”, didn’t anyone else notice the “Suggest a better translation”.. It’s pretty obvious..
