Say It in French, or Not


I got this idea from my blog idol, Deb from Boondoggled. (go read her post, it's a riot).

But here's the idea: Write a paragraph or two. Then go to Babelfish
and have it translated to any language you so desire. Then take that translation and have it translated back to English and see what you get.

Here's my message in English:

You, my dear blogging buddies, are the best group of people in the world. You've given me laughs, support and hugs these past weeks and I've appreciated all of them. Don't stop!!! I'll need lots more to get my rear in gear. I promise I'll return the favor. After all, I may have some extra time on my hands in the future when every day will be Funday for me!

French translation:

Vous, mes chers copains blogging, êtes le meilleur groupe de personnes dans le monde. Vous m'avez donné des rires, soutenez et les étreintes ces semaines passées et moi ont apprécié tous. N'arrêtez pas ! ! ! Je volonté ai besoin de sorts de plus pour obtenir mon âne dans la vitesse. Je promets que je renverrai la faveur. Après tout, je peux avoir une certaine heure supplémentaire sur mes mains à l'avenir quand chaque jour sera Funday pour moi !

Now, here's the French translated back to English:

You, my dear buddies blogging, are the best group of people in the world. You gave me laughter, support and the pressures these weeks last and me appreciated all. Do not stop! ! ! I will need fates moreover to obtain my ass in speed. I promise that I will return the favour. After all, I can in the future have a certain overtime on my hands when each day is Funday for me!

Have fun! ;-)

Peace

We're five to ten years away from real-time artificial translating, I think. It'll come.

Thanks, Odat! I also cherish you and my other blog pals. Having a sounding board and support avalailable to me has carried me through. Don't stop blogging after you retire!

into Greek:
Ευχαριστίες, Odat! Λατρεύω επίσης σας και το άλλο blog μου pals. Η κατοχή ενός αντηχείου και μιας υποστήριξης avalailable σε με με έχει φέρει εις πέρας. Μην σταματήστε αφότου αποσύρεστε!

and back to English:
Thanks, Odat! I worship also you and the other blog my pals. The possession of resonator and support avalailable in with with has brought to an end. Do not stop since you withdraw itself!
