    Has anyone else here visited [link=http://world.altavista.com/]Babel Fish Translation?[/link] 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. ;)
