    Has anyone else here visited Babel Fish Translation? If you translate the same thread or paragraph long enough they stop making sense. For example the previous sentance would look like this:
    It has any person translation visited here of the fish of Babel? If you translate the same thread of spiral or paragraph enough time they stop having of sense.



    Today I was bored so I translated the LI forums and got the following (copy and paste):

    Translating the longest single line (spoken in one breath!) in SW---

    "Between his howling and your blasting everything in sight it's a wonder the whole station doesn't know we're here!"

    --from English to French to German and back again:

    Between its, which and you blowing it is a miracle walk that the whole station does not know that we are here!

    (Mind you, Babel Fish seems unable to translate contractions [it's/doesn't/we're] so when I input the original line I used full words [it is/does not/we are]. ;))

    "Me in order to believe it discovers it insufficiency in order to disturb."

    English-->French-->German-->English-->Portuguese-->English-->Korean-->English. Guess the line. :D

    " ; Me end to believe him that l'insuffisance disturbs. " ; It discovers;


    English -> Korean -> English -> Portuguese -> English -> German -> French -> English


    Is that the quote? ;)

    Well, I'm pretty certain I got it. I PM'ed my guess to Will... I didn't bother doing the whole chain of translations, but the last bit (English -> Korean -> English) seems to generate most of the interesting mixing-up. :)

    Guess the quote:
    "Leia king woman: It' S still the wonder you' which lives;
    Re. [ Passing Chewbacca, you push ]
    the Leia king woman: Is the carpet where someone this is large from my method and walks obtained? Independent ??: Remuneration there is no this value."

    This was like a science project gone awry:

    "laugh it up Faeserchenkugel"

    Apparently there's no direct translation for fuzz ball. [face_thinking]

    Babel fish are good with a little bit of lemon but have too many bones. ;)
