Google Translate.

Some bloggers post utter bull****, pardon my French, but it’s the sad and bitter truth.

Maybe you consider that my posts fall into that category as well, fair enough. If I’m pointing a finger at someone three fingers point right back at me, right?

Anyway, I’m not talking about irrelevant posts, because everyone has a right to write whatever they want. (Yes, I’m standing up for my stupid posts. Haha.)

I’m talking about posts which have the basic English so f***ed up, that it leaves the reader bewildered.

I recently learnt that people use Google Translate to write their posts.

This may come as a surprise, nay a shock to most of you :

Google Translate is not very accurate.

Relax everyone, take a deep breath, visualize your happy place…….

To prove my point, and this will be understood only by those who understand both English and Hindi, here are a few translations by Master Google :

1) English sentences translated to Hindi :

2) Hindi sentences translated to English : (I dare you not to laugh. *wink*)

A suggestion to bloggers who write with the help of Google Translate :

Google Translate is undoubtedly very helpful when it comes to learning a new language. But when it comes to writing poems or posts, it isn’t always 100% accurate.

Why don’t you write posts in your native language and then ask a friend who knows English to translate them? Or better, just upload content in your native language. I have seen tons of blogs which are written in languages other than English, and they’re doing great.

Just a suggestion, don’t shoot the messenger. Jeez!

Thank you for reading! Stay blessed!

  1. Google translate zindabaad πŸ˜‚
    But it’s really helpful for the people who use Google Translate to write posts. πŸ˜€ I didn’t know people actually use it here! Really, a small heads up to them!!☺️

    1. My Hindi is terrible. But I’d never want to post a poem in Hindi which I translated from English, using Google Translate. 😁 Maybe it’s just me. πŸ™ˆ

      1. Hahaha. I too personally don’t trust Google Translate. Its convenient only for a sentence or two, that too framed gramatically correct (not the cinematic language πŸ˜‚). I can’t imagine it translating a whole poem from one language to another!! It will be disastrous, right? πŸ˜‚

        1. Exactly! That’s my point. πŸ˜πŸ™ˆ A sentence or two is okay.. But see the hindi song translations above, they don’t make any sense. πŸ˜‚

          1. I know right!πŸ˜‚
            There’s some problem with my comments when being delivered to you, the thing is that my comments get accepted hours later I’ve sent them. Just wanted to let you know about this so that you don’t think that I like your comment and leave it unanswered.
            (I don’t even know when this one will get deliveredπŸ˜‚)

            1. Actually I manually approve the comments. So I had approved your comment much later (a while ago) because I had just gone to sleep after I uploaded the post. 😁
              Don’t worry, I’ll never get the wrong impression, because you’re far too kind. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’›

                    1. Awww thanks, Priya. πŸ’› I really appreciate it.
                      But I don’t do the award posts, never did them before also. I hope you don’t mind. πŸ™ˆ

                    2. My pleasure, Ellen. πŸ’–
                      It’s absolutely fine, I think awards are made to show fellow bloggers how much you appreciate their blog and writing and as long as this message is conveyed, I’m more than happy. Thank you for considering my nomination. I appreciate it more than you think.πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–

              1. No, Google called me Allen in the translation. How rude Google, how rude! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

                But thank you for the kindness, I hope Bharath learns something from you. πŸ˜πŸ˜‰

                  1. Hahaha yeah.. It’s also a name of a guy.. So many people call me Allen, I don’t know why they find Ellen so difficult to pronounce. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

                    Which state/city are you from, Priya? Your hindi is really good and so is your english! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’›

        1. Nice to meet you, Savio. 😊
          We stayed in South Goa when we came to Goa in December.
          When we were young we loved North Goa alone, but now we love the peace of South Goa. North Goa has become too crowded.

              1. Colva normally is. Betalbatim or still further…Cansaulim, Velsao….cleaner, more privy but not much in terms of shacks. Just pure un-adulterated water, sand and alone time and thoughts 😎😎😎 pretty sunny these days though!

                1. Water, sand and alone time, that’s what Goa is all about. 😁😍

                  It’s 40 degrees in Pune, so I can only imagine how hot Goa will be.
                  When we were there in December it was like summer, and in Pune it was 3 degrees. 😁

                    1. Really? I can’t stand the cold. And I don’t like when the weather’s too hot either. πŸ˜πŸ˜‚ Goa never gets cold, does it? Very few winters are actually cold over there.. 😁

  2. Ellen!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    This is gonna devastate so many people! A knife through the heart!
    A kick in the face after a fall!!
    This is obliteration!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

                1. Uggghhhh. Now he thinks he’s God. *face palm*
                  Okay fine, if I get a Nobel Prize for saving English, I shall thank you in my speech. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

                    1. They will, I’m sure.. I’m Nobel-worthy. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
                      May the real God, the one and only God, bless you and knock some sense in your head. 😝

                    2. You’re ‘nope’ bel worthy πŸ˜‚
                      I’m blessed child and hath ventured here to share my prophecy.
                      Thou art lucky, Ellen of Goa
                      For the messenger calls upon thee.

                    3. High horse! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
                      North? And then when I reach the sea, where do I go, where will I be?
                      And what if my high horse dies, because it’s so hot! πŸ˜”

      1. Hahahhaha I know they can be quite pathetic.I wish we could actually have a real dedicated translator.As I came to realise from another blogger @SummitOfficial that actually Hindi and Gujirati are two different languages.

          1. Hahahahhaha Ellen,22 is a fete.And here I thought we had some large numbers of languages or tribes.Well,I used to think all Indians spoke Gujirati.I am in Nairobi Kenya.

              1. Oooh girl,one twenty what??? Go ahead shock me now or kill me already…This is amazeballs!! You should visit Kenya…it is just across the ocean.Hahahaha thanks a lot for this insight.Am blazed away.

                1. Oh and the funny thing, I speak only English. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
                  Hahaha I’ve never been out of India, so I don’t know when I’ll cross any oceans. In the near future, I hope. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

                  1. Oooooh nooo…God din’t hear that,too bad He has ears everywhere.Hahahahah this is amazing.If you came to Kenya you would learn one more,Swahili, a combination of Arabic and our coastal languages….You should come.And I too would love to visit India.

                    1. I have a mental block when it comes to learning new languages. But I love learning about new cultures. Will surely visit Kenya! 😊
                      Yes, you should visit India too. It’s a wonderful country, except that there’s too much traffic and too many people. 😁

                    2. I see online they say India has a lot of traffic,people and tuktuks….But nothing to stop me all the same even though I am claustrophobic
                      ….I love people all the same and visiting new places is amazing.

                    3. Hahaha tuktuks sounds so cute when a foreigner says it! 😁 They’re also called rickshaws. (I assume you’re talking about them.)
                      I do not like crowds and I am slightly claustrophobic as well. πŸ™ˆ
                      Well, it would be awesome if I meet you when you come to India. Do let me know. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

                    4. I sure will…Ooh yes we talking about the same thing I presume.Too bad can’t share a pic here but I assume they are those 3-wheeled commuter trucks that carry about 3passengers at a time..Right? Am on a mission to travel the world and meet more people with diverse cultures and ideologies,blog more and enjoy this life in a positive perspective so yeah India is a definite check box.

                    5. Hehe yes, they’re the same automobiles you’ve described. 😁

                      Wow I’ve always wanted to do that too, travel the world. πŸ’›

                    6. Awesome.Glad we on the same page.I think it is never too late to start…Also want to start now Ellen
                      …we can do it.

                    7. I’m still studying though. Once I get financially independent I will be able to start travelling. πŸ™ˆ

                      But I wish you the best on your journey to travel the world. πŸ’›

                    8. I’m doing my higher studies so I’m not very young. I’m in my mid-20s. πŸ™ˆ

                      But age is just a number, right? Being young at heart no matter your age is what makes you stay young forever. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

                    9. Hahahahhahaha I believe so …You are right.Doing my early thirties so I still believe mid twenties gives you more opportunities to do a lot,learn,make mistakes,rectify and all.I love life in that aspect….

                    10. I agree. This is the age you face depression, failure and see the true side of people.
                      I see some youngsters who are in their teens, yet so mature, even more than I am right now. 😁 I really admire them, because I am still such a kid. πŸ˜‚

                    11. Hahahahaha if they haven’t seen this far then they are blind and can’t be helped and even a blind person can behold beauty.Hahahahahhah

                    12. I stay in the Western part of India, in a state called Maharashtra.
                      It’s 2 am right now over here. 😁 What about there?

                    13. Ooooh I understand you.If I knew you personally I would ask what you study but that is personal I guess and this is a public domain…mmmmh

                    14. Oh I see. 😁 I’ve to get back to studies though. So we’ll chat some other time, if you don’t mind. πŸ˜πŸ™ˆ

                    15. Thank you…..haha tell me the difference between the yellow,red and pink heart emojis…Always cautious about emojis in general as I rarely know which means what?

                    16. Ohh I put yellow hearts everywhere.. Only yellow.. Will be writing a funny post about it soon.. Then you’ll know..πŸ˜‰πŸ˜

  3. I think it’s poems where the most goofups happen. The prose translation is okay. If I use it for other languages I always write I used Google translate lest they should take offense beacuse Google was stupid and not I.

    1. I agree. It’s mostly poems which have an issue. And yes, it’s wise to mention that you used Google Translate when you post. πŸ˜€

  4. Maybe I belong to the group which posts utter bull**** posts, as You call them. I accept!

    I do not know Hindi, but I know Finnish which is one of the most difficult languages in the world. Google do not generally translate Finnish correct. Due to that everyone in Finland recognizes hoax messages sent to them. Finnish is odd language. It may look easy at the first glance. Some examples:

    Using Finnish in poems, it gives huge possibility to say nearly everything only by changing last words adding one letter in the beginning of words.

    Let us take the word: akka, which means old hag, old female, bitch, old woman, old lady, missus wimp, queen.

    Let us add one letter (L) in the beginning: Lakka, means cloudberry, varnish, lacquer, sealing vax, lacker.

    Let us add another letter (K) in the beginning: Kakka, means poo, pooh, poop.

    Let us add another letter (T)in the beginning: Takka, means fireplace.

    Let us add another letter (V) in the beginning: Vakka, means bushel, basket.

    Let us add another letter (S) in the beginning: Sakka, means sediment, deposit, lees.

    Let us add another letter (R) in the beginning: Rakka, means fragmented rock.

    Let us add another letter (P) in the beginning: Pakka, means pack, packet, bundle.

    When adding one letter (J) in the beginning and two letters (ra) to the end: Jakkara, it means stool, taboret, tabouret.

    When adding one letter (M) in the beginning and two letters (ra) to the end: Makkara, it means sausage.

    In Finnish You can make sentences which begins with the same letter. Example:

    Antti ajaa aina Audillaan Andalusiaan. This means: Antti drives always his Audi to Andalucia.

    Happy weekend!

    1. Hi. I wasn’t referring to any of your posts because I’ve never read any of your posts before. It was just a general post to make people laugh, no intention of hurting anyone.

      Anyway, thank you for sharing those Finnish words. Good day!

      1. Thank You for Your kind reply. Oh, yes, I am quite sure that You never visited my posts, because those who visit it, say that it is awesome, that my blog is in four languages (English, Spanish, French and Portuguese). I am pure amateur. English, I learnt in School. Spanish while working there 4Β½ months. French by translating 10 books using a dictionary in my hands. Portuguese in two winter courses. I know also some German and Swedish, but not able to blog in them.

        Every post text teaches me when making translations. Every language has its special requirements.

        Happy Sunday!

  5. Omg. That really made me laugh especially the sapno ki rani. Yes, it absolutely isn’t accurate and not the trustworthy kind of stuff. What advice you gave might actually be helpful. I myself ain’t so good in bengali because I haven’t read bengali in school that’s why when I wrote a poem, I gave it to my friends and they checked it for me if it was correct. πŸ˜‹πŸ˜ƒ
    This is kinda hilarious, maybe now I will write stuff in google translate and see what it makes to get a good laugh. 🀣 Lol

    1. Hahaha exactly! It’s wise that you asked your friends to correct your Bengali poem, Google Translate is useless. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Check translations of songs or poems, they’re hilarious. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Thanks for reading, Ramyani. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’›

      1. Oh I did. It’s a good source of entertainment really. Whenever I will feel down, i will translate something πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  6. 😁yes i was angry, because it wasn’t copy paste as you said, it was😁so you was wrong, but well still trying to improve by writing my posts and i’m not using google anymore, i hope it will get better with time❀️

    1. Actually I had written the plagiarism post about some other bloggers who actually copy paste, because of the different fonts in their post. I didn’t mean to upset you, I’d never be cruel to anyone.

      In this post I only mentioned you to say that you spoke about using Google Translate. But for the record, your Google Translate posts were very good.

      It’s only the people who write poems in their native language and who translate with Google who don’t make sense.

      I have read poems of a guy which didn’t make any sense at all. Then I translated it into Hindi with Google Translate and it made perfect sense. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

        1. Hehe so sweet. I will delete those posts where I mentioned you as well. In this post I will remove any reference to you. ☺️

            1. I never mention people’s names in rants. Coz I’ve had bloggers who have hurt me by personal attacks and I would never do the same.
              If I ever write a rant, it’s only for humour. 😁☺️

                1. I had tried reporting someone on my previous blog. But then WordPress replies back after a few days saying that they cannot ban a site unless a Court case is taken out against the person. 😁
