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 then remembered the angry blogger who mentioned that she uses Google Translate to write her posts, since she isn’t fluent in English.
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!
