Instead of taking it as an exercise for unintentionally delivered humor, I went to find out where the translation went wrong. So I gave it something really simple:

English: I want to eat hamburger.
Romanian : Vreau să mănânce hamburgeri.
Back to English : I want to eat hamburgers.
Lithuanian : Noriu valgyti mėsainius.
Back to English : I want to eat hamburgers.
Korean : 햄버거를 먹고 싶어요.
Back to English : Want to eat burgers.
Finnish : Haluat syödä hampurilaiset.
Back to English : You want to eat hot dogs.

Arabic : تريد أكل الكلاب الساخنة.
Back to English : Want to eat hot dogs.
Slovak : Chcete jesť hot dogy.
Back to English : You want to eat hot dogs.
Greek : Θέλετε να τρώνε ζεστό σκύλων.
Back to English : Want to eat hot dogs.
Czech : Chtějí hot dog.
Back to English : Want a hot dog.
Italian : Vuoi un hot dog.
Back to English : Want a hot dog.
Romanian : Doriţi hot dog.
Back to English : You want hot dog.

The Korean seems to be similar to Japanese in that it often does not have the subject, and eventually it goes back to English without the subject, and then in the Finnish iteration, the subject became "you". Even more mystifying is how burgers became hot dogs in the Finnish translation loop.


English: I will go to my parent's home this weekend.
Hebrew : אלך לבית האב שלי בסוף השבוע הזה.
Back to English : Go to my master this weekend.

Greek : Μεταβείτε το υπόδειγμα μου αυτό το Σαββατοκύριακο.
Back to English : Go to my master this weekend.
German : Gehen Sie zu mein Meister dieses Wochenende.
Back to English : Go this weekend to my master.
Estonian : Sel nädalavahetusel minna minu kapten.
Back to English : This weekend to go to my master.
Japanese : 私のマスターを行くこの週末。
Back to English : My Masters this weekend.

Russian : Моя мастеров в эти выходные.
Back to English : My Masters this weekend.
Finnish : Oma päälliköiden tänä viikonloppuna.
Back to English : My Masters this weekend.
Hungarian : A főkiszolgálók ezen a hétvégén.
Back to English : The masters this weekend.
Indonesian : Master akhir pekan ini.
Back to English : Master this weekend.
Italian : Master in questo fine settimana.
Back to English : Master this weekend.

Here it is clear that the Hebrew translation loop is very weak. Basically the meaning is entirely ruined in the first iteration, and with the subject also got dropped. And by the time it reached the Japanese loop, the sentence, be it the English one prior to being translated to Japanese or the Japanese translation, is no longer grammatically correct. And the English that was translated from the Japanese sentence that makes hardly sense finally altered completely the meaning from its very first input.

To conclude, even for very simple and straightforward sentence we are seeing some very weak translation engine out there. Apparently the Finnish and Hebrew showed particular weakness.

In fact, I later tried the second example with the Google translation (I was using the default Bing at first) and got the following:


Persian : من به خانه پدر و مادر من به این آخر هفته.
Back to English : I go home to my parents this weekend.
Slovenian : Grem domov k mojim staršem ta vikend.
Back to English : I go home to my parents this weekend.
Indonesian : Aku pulang ke orangtuaku akhir pekan ini.
Back to English : I go home to my parents this weekend.
Swahili : Mimi kwenda nyumbani kwa wazazi wangu mwishoni mwa wiki hii.
Back to English : I go home to my parents this weekend.
Norwegian : Jeg går hjem til foreldrene mine denne helgen.
Back to English : I go home to my parents this weekend.
Lithuanian : Aš einu namo, kad mano tėvai šį savaitgalį.
Back to English : I am going home to my parents this weekend.
Vietnamese : Tôi sẽ về nhà với cha mẹ của tôi vào cuối tuần này.
Back to English : I'll be home with my parents this weekend.
Turkish : Annemi ve babamı eve bu hafta sonu olacak.
Back to English : My mother and my father will be home this weekend.

Portuguese : Minha mãe e meu pai estará em casa neste fim de semana.
Back to English : My mom and dad will be home this weekend.
Bulgarian : Майка ми и баща ми ще се прибере този уикенд.
Back to English : My mom and dad will be home this weekend.

This time the decisive change of the meaning came in the Turkish loop. I guess we can add Turkish to the list of language machine translation is weak at.

I think this is my favorite of the bad translation posts. Not only is it funny, but also informative.

Yeah, that's pretty screwed up. The only reason both of these changes happened is because the translator is plain bad. In Finnish we can express the subject just by conjugating the verb (which happens there), but I don't know why it does that change in the first place because it's also possible to simply write "Haluaa syödä" (the difference being that the t from Haluat is dropped and another a added) which means exactly the same thing as "Want to eat". The burger/hot dog bit is even weirder - the change occurs when it's translated back to English and there is no ambiguity about it in Finnish. A burger is a burger and it can never mean a hot dog.
