PostSubject: The Translation Game   Mon Aug 01, 2011 5:45 am

Okay, so I've seen this type of game on other forums I've been at, so I'm gonna try it here.

Basically, I'll start with some random sentence. The next person then takes that sentence and translates it into some random language (aside from English) using a free online translator such as Google Translate. They then take the result and translate it back to English. They then post the resulting gibberish and the next person does the same.

For example (this is the process, not the post format):

[Person 1]
Original sentence: Hi there, I'm a fish.
Translation (into Hebrew): שלום לך, אני דגים.
Translation back into English: How are you, I fish.

[Person 2]
Above sentence: How are you, I fish.
Translation (into Russian): Как вы, я ужу.
Translation back into English: As you, I to grass snake.


This is how you would post it:

[Person 1]
How are you, I fish. (Hebrew)

[Person 2]
As you, I to grass snake. (Russian)


Rules:
-Translate the resulting sentence of the person above you as described above.
-Please post in the format I gave (resulting sentence in italics, used language in brackets).
-If the result is basically unchanged, try a different language.
-Don't translate it yourself. Use a free online translator such as the one I linked to in the description.
-Please don't edit the resulting translation, even if the word use is boring or vulgar. It sort of ruines the game.
-Use copy-pasting, please. Otherwise errors may occur.
-If the word "who" appears in the result, retranslate immediately to avoid a World Health Organization issue (that shizz endures like sin...).


Here's the starting sentence:
