Google Translate Fail

As FB users know, FB loves to offer translations of various posts from other lands.  This one, on a new translation of the Bible in German, with it’s ‘Bible in self-righteous language’ is a prime example of why Google translate is rubbish.  Google translate is as ‘good’ as Wikipedia… and as ‘accurate’.

  1. FB actually uses Bing to translate, presumably since Microsoft invested in FB. I am not suggesting that Google translate is any better or worse, but since FB/Bing does it automatically, its translation failures are more prominent.
