Translate

Google Translate is terrible!

A work friend emailed me today in Japanese, and silly me I plunked his email into Google Translate.

The first line reads, “”Contact your buttocks <Major Japanese Corporation>.”

In Japanese it was “<Major Japanese Corporation> 製作所ご担当者殿。” Something went very wrong with Google Translate.

 

Google Translate is horrible!

Mount Fuji, Hiroshige

My father-in-law and some friends climbed Mount Fuji last night. Recently a few hikers have died, and I heard the weather last night was poor. Fortunately, Docomo allows constant contact. Unfortunately, I used Google Translate to interpret my mother-in-law’s text message. Google Translate is incredibly BAD.

I have caused you worry. It arrived safely to the summit of Mount Fuji now. I’m fine with everyone safe. M**K* only start in the rain, climbed last year, this year, left the car and stop it. I’ll bet I can run in the car. When the rain started just after the long-GO来光in the clouds, so you could not see shit! To prepare future, they are likely to go down a mountain. Please be assured. Also Contact. Worry a lot, thank you. Everyone頑張RIMASHITA good! Thank you, mother –

Maybe Google Translate just wants to encourage me to learn Japanese faster and rely less on their service?
