    "I think I won the bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich. I was looking through the off topic forum of the Photo Forum, and I couldn't find a thread about babelfish translations. So, I have decided that in order to win the aforementioned Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato sandwich with Mayo on toasted sour dough bread, I would start the thread.
    Here is my contribution, and hopefully it will turn out great as it. I used Babelfish, and I first translated it from English to German, then from German back to English. Hope you all like it.
    Please don't let me be the only one on the Forum to post to this thread."

    "Ich denke, daß ich das Speckkopfsalat- und -tomatesandwich gewann. Ich schaute durch das weg Themaforum des Foto-Forums, und ich könnte nicht ein Gewinde über babelfish Übersetzungen finden. So habe ich entschieden, daß, um den vorher erwähnten Speck zu gewinnen, Kopfsalat- und Tomatesandwich mit Mayo auf geröstetem saurem Teigbrot, ich das Gewinde beginnen würde. Ist hier mein Beitrag und hoffnungsvoll dreht sich er aus großem als er. Ich verwendete Babelfish und ich übersetzte es zuerst von englischem zum Deutschen, dann vom Deutschen zurück zu Englisch. Hoffen Sie Sie allen wie es. Bitte lassen Sie mich nicht der einzige auf dem zu diesem Gewinde bekanntzugeben Forum sein."

    "I think that I won the bacon head salad and tomatesandwich. I looked topic forum of the photo forum by that away, and I could not find a thread over babelfish to translations. Thus I decided that, in order to win the above-mentioned bacon with Mayo on roasted sour paste bread, I head-salad and tomato-sand-yielded the thread would begin. My contribution is and hopeful turns here it from large as it. I used Babelfish and I translated it first from English to the German, then of the German back to English. Hope you all like it. Please you do not let me communicate the only one on to this thread the forum to be."

    You are indeed the winner! I can send a BLT to your address, POSTAGE paid courier. It's gonna cost me like 2.00 to make the sandwich and probly 30.00 to have it sent priority so it's still fresh! This will be a fun topic, I am sending English to German because it seems to turn out really funny!

    Sie sind in der Tat der Sieger! Ich kann ein BLT zu Ihrer Adresse, PORTO schicken gezahlter Eilbote. Er wird mich kosten, wie 2.00, um das Sandwich und probly 30.00 es gesendete Priorität also sie haben zu lassen noch frisch ist! Dieses ist ein Spaßthema, ich schicken dem Deutschen Englisch, weil es scheint, sich aus wirklich lustigem zu drehen!

    The wonderful thing about translation programs is how they can totally miss the point. English is an exceptionally difficult language to automate and I would be surprised if anyone managed to write a computer program soon which will make sense.

    Rob

    翻訳プログラムについてのすばらしい事はそれらが全く ポイントをいかに逃すことができるかである。英語は自動化する べき特別に困難な言語であり, 感覚を作るかどれがだれでも計算 機プログラムをすぐに書くことをどうにかして私は驚く。

    Rob

    Concerning the translator splendid thing is those completely how can let escape the point. English is difficult language especially it should automate, it makes feeling, or either one how, it does and that anyone writes the computer program directly I am surprised.

    I can't decide which is better: a $35 BLT or seeing how babelfish translates things from one language to another. OK, this time I'm going to experiment with this program. I will attempt to translate from English to Dutch, from Dutch to French, and finally back to English. Here goes...

    Ik kan beslissen niet welke beter is: $35 BLT of het zien van hoe babelfish dingen uit één taal in een andere vertaalt. O.K., dit keer ga ik met dit programma experimenteren. Ik zal om van Engels aan het Nederlands, van het Nederlands aan het Frans proberen te vertalen, en definitief terug naar het Engels. Gaat hier...

    Je ne peux pas décider lequel améliorent est : $35 BLT ou la vue comment babelfish traduit les choses d'un langue en autre. O.K., ceci la fois vais expérimenter m'avec ce programme. Me pour de anglais à néerlandais, de néerlandais en train de français essayé de traduire, et définitivement vers anglais. Va ici...

    I cannot decide which improve is: $35 BLT or the sight how babelfish translates the things of a language into other. O.K., this the time will try out me with this program. Me for Dutch English, of Dutch in the French train tried to translate, and definitively into English. Goes here...

    If I weren't able to retranslate the so-called "German" texts back into English in my mind, I would not understand any of it. Apart from words like "probably" shortened to "probly", which the databank at babelfish simply does not HAVE, those WORDS used here are German all right. But the sentences make no sense at all!

    Though the machine DID get one thing right.

    "You are indeed the winner" was quite correctly (!) translated into
    "Sie sind in der Tat der Sieger". Yay!

    How so?
    Nothing at all differed in the sentence structure of said sentence. But the machine cannot translate semantics. Let alone double meanings or some such very difficult things. Sponateous word-coinages (aprilravens "girl-rilla" springs to mind here) are totally out of the question.

    Now let the system mangle my text, hang on.

    (Dang. Babelfish costs MONEY! :shock: So the Google Language Tools had to "help" me)

    Wenn ich nicht in der LageWAR, die sogenannten "deutschen" Texte zurück in Englisch in meinem Verstand zu zurückübersetzen, würde ich nicht irgendwelche von ihm verstehen. Abgesehen von Wörtern wie "vermutlich" verkürzte "probly", die die Datenbank am babelfish einfach nicht HAT, jene WÖRTER, die hier verwendet wurden, sind deutsches ganz rechtes. Aber die Sätze sind kein sinnvoll an allen!

    Obwohl die Maschine ein Sacherecht erhielt.

    "Sie sind in der Tat der Sieger" wurden ziemlich richtig (!) übersetzt in "sind Sie im deraußentemperaturder Sieger". Yay!

    Wie so? Nichts an ganz unterschieden in der Satzstruktur des besagten Satzes. Aber die Maschine kann nicht Semantik übersetzen. Geschweige denn doppelte Bedeutungen oder einige solche sehr schwierige Sachen. Wort-Prägungen Sponateous (aprilravens "Mädchen-rilla" entspringt zum Verstand hier), sind total außer Frage.

    Lassen Sie jetzt den Systemmangle mein Text, Fall an.

    :biggrin:

    (Right. Text-jumble back into English, please.)

    If I were not in that, the so-called "German" texts back into English in my understanding to back-translate, I would understand not any about him. Apart from words as "probably probly", which the data base DOES NOT HAVE to babelfish simply, those WORDS, which were used here, is German completely right "shortened". But the sentences are not meaningful at all!

    Although the machine received a thing right.
    "you are indeed the winner" rather correctly (!) translated into "are you in the that outside temperature that winners". Yay!

    How so? Nothing on completely differentiated with respect to the sentence structure of the mentioned sentence. But the machine cannot translate semantics. Let alone doubled meanings or some such very difficult things. Word coinages Sponateous (aprilravens "girl rilla" rises to the understanding here), are total except question.

    Leave system-lack now my text, case on.

    :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: ​

    Oh dear. My typos did give the machine a harder time than it would otherwise have had but well... it is still great fun! :D

    OH- lieb. Meine typos gaben der Maschine eine härtere Zeit, als sie anders gehabt haben würde, aber wohl... es noch großer Spaß ist!

    (Real German would have been: Oh weia! Meine Tippfehler haben der Maschine das Leben schwerer gemacht, als sie sonst gehabt hätte, aber egal... es macht immernoch viel Spaß!)

    Google-German re-translated:
    Oh dear. My typos gave a harder time to the machine, than it would differently have had, but probably... it still large fun is!

    Real German translated:
    Oh weia! My typing errors made the life heavier for the machine, than them would have otherwise had, but all the same... it always still makes much fun!

    My god :roll:
    :lol:

    LaFoto, unless the Babelfish bastards are sticking it to the Germans, it should be free. Just try going to http://www.babelfish.altavista.com. That should do the trick. NEVER PAY FOR ANYTHING ON THE INTERNET (least of all porn...oh, sorry, I didn't mean to say that out loud).

    LaFoto, es sei denn die Babelfish bastard es an den Deutschen haften, sollte es frei sein. Gerechter Versuch, der zu http://www.babelfish.altavista.com geht. Das sollte den Trick tun. ZAHLEN Sie NIE FÜR ALLES AUF DEM INTERNET (wenig alles porn... OH-, traurig, bedeutete ich nicht, den heraus zu sagen loud).

    LaFoto, it is the Babelfish hybrid it at the Germans clings, should it be free. Fair attempt, which goes too http://www.babelfish.altavista.com. That should do the trick. NEVER PAY FOR EVERYTHING ON the InterNet (little everything porn... OH -, sadly, I meant not to say that out loud).

    Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived in a village near the forest. Whenever, she went out, the little girl wore a red riding cloak, so everyone in the village called her Little Red Riding Hood.

    One morning, Little Red Riding Hood asked her mother if she could go to visit her grandmother as it had been awhile since they'd seen each other.

    "That's a good idea," her mother said. So they packed a nice basket for Little Red Riding Hood to take to her grandmother.

    Il était une fois, il y avait une petite fille qui a vécu dans un village près de la forêt. Toutes les fois que, elle est sortie, la petite fille a porté un manteau rouge d'équitation, ainsi chacun dans le village a appelé son petit capot rouge d'équitation. Pendant un matin, peu de capot rouge d'équitation a demandé à sa mère si elle pourrait aller rendre visite à sa grand-mère car il avait été pendant quelque temps depuis qu'ils vu. "qui est une bonne idée," sa mère a dit. Ainsi ils ont emballé un panier gentil pour que peu de capot rouge d'équitation prenne à sa grand-mère.

    Er war einmal, es gab ein kleines Mädchen, das in einem Dorf in der Nähe des Waldes gelebt hat. Immer,wenn sie herausgekommen ist das kleine Mädchen getragen einen roten Reitmantel, so hat jeder im Dorf seine kleine rote Reithaube gerufen. Während eines Morgens hat wenig rote Reithaube ihre Mutter gefragt, ob sie ihre Großmutter besuchen gehen könnte, denn er war während einiger Zeiten, seit sie angesichts. "wer ist eine gute Idee hat" seine Mutter gesagt. So haben sie einen netten Korb eingepackt, damit wenig rote Reithaube von ihrer Großmutter stiehlt.

    Il l'était une fois, a donné une petite fille qui a vécu dans un village à proximité de la forêt. Toujours, si elle est sorti porté une couche de monte rouge, chacun dans le village sa petite hotte de monte rouge a la petite fille appelé. Tandis que la hotte de monte rouge a sa mère peu demandé un matin si elle pourrait aller sa grand-mère visiter, car il était pendant quelques temps, depuis qu'elle eu égard. "celui qui est une bonne idée a" sa mère dit. Ainsi, ils ont emballé un panier agréable, afin que la hotte de monte rouge de sa grand-mère vole peu.

    It was to it once, gave a small girl who lived in a village near the forest. Always, if it left carried a layer goes up red, each one in the village its small hood of assembles red A the small girl called. While the hood of assembles red A his/her mother little required a morning if it could go her grandmother to visit, because it was during a few times, since she have regard. "that which is a good idea has" his/her mother said. Thus, they packed a pleasant basket, so that the hood of goes up red of his/her grandmother flies little.

    Nice. Rob :)

    OK, this is cheating a bit, but here are some limericks I posted in the limerick thread (sorry the formatting will be off, but if you really want to read them head over to the limerick thread):

    I went to a bar in town
    My sorrows intending to drown
    Became quite drunk
    and who woulda thunk
    that I'd wake up in a gown

    My goal was to get quite pished
    to my dismay I mished
    The girl with the rack
    Was really quite stacked
    To take her home I wished

    I went and chatted her up
    An invitation to sup
    She laughed in my face
    and to my disgrace
    Into her lap I threw up

    The bouncer then appeared
    and things got really weird
    The lights came on
    and reality dawned
    The well stacked chick had a beard

    And so I returned to my home
    and I'm swearing off the foam
    I'll stick with the chicks
    without any pricks
    And I'll never have to groan


    O.K., dieses betrügt eine Spitze, aber ist hier etwas limericks, die ich im limerick Gewinde bekanntgab (traurig ist die Formatierung aus, aber, wenn Sie wirklich sie Hauptüberschuß zum limerick Gewinde lesen möchten): Ich ging zu einem Stab in der Stadt meine sorgen, die beabsichtigen zu ertrinken, wurde ziemlich betrunken und wer woulda thunk, das ich in einem Kleid aufwachen würde Mein Ziel war zu erhalten pished durchaus zu meinem Schrecken, den ich das Mädchen mit der Zahnstange wurde wirklich durchaus gestapelt, um ihr Haus zu nehmen mished, ich wünschte Ich ging sie herauf eine Einladung zum sup plaudern, das sie in meinem Gesicht lachte und zu meiner Schande in ihren Schoß warf ich oben Der Prahler erschien dann und Sachen erhielten die Lichter angingen wirklich sonderbar und Wirklichkeit dämmerte das gut Staplungsküken hatte einen Bart Und so kam ich zu meinem Haus zurück und ich schw50re weg vom Schaumgummi, den ich mit den Küken ohne irgendwelche Stichel hafte und ich muß nie ächzen


    O.k., this pray-reprimands a point, but is here something limericks, which I communicated in limerick the thread (sadly is formatting out, but, if you liked to really read it main surplus to limerick the thread): I went ensuring to a staff in the city my, intend to drown, became rather drunk and who woulda thunk, which I would wake up in a dress my goal was to receive pished quite to my fright, which became I the girl with the rack really quite stacked to take over their house mished, I wished I went it an invitation to sup plaudern, it in my face laughed up and my dishonor into its lap threw I the Prahler appeared above then and things received the lights concerned really strangely and reality dawned that well Staplungskueken had a beard and so I returned to my house and I schw50re away of the foam rubber, that I with the Kueken without any burins clings and I must never aechzen

    Corry, my dear, you are very sweet and I would love to break a BLT bread sandwich with you; however, you seem to have confused the babelfish thread and the what's for lunch thread...true, they are intimately related, but they are different. But, since we like you we will let you off with a warning...assuming you edit your post to comply. If you do not, however, the punishment may be servere (I've read how you deal with others in another post--something about Hertz' S&M dungeon...)

    Corry, mein liebes, sind Sie sehr süß und ich würde lieben, ein BLT Brotsandwich mit Ihnen zu brechen; jedoch scheinen Sie, das babelfish Gewinde verwirrt zu haben und was für das zutreffende Mittagessengewinde... ist, werden sie vertraut bezogen, aber sie sind unterschiedlich. Aber, da wir Sie mögen, lassen wir Sie weg mit einem warnendem..., Sie annehmend, Ihren Pfosten zu redigieren, um einzuwilligen. Wenn Sie nicht jedoch kann die Bestrafung servere (ich habe wie gelesen, Sie andere in einem anderen Pfosten -- etwas über Hertz ' S&M Kerker... beschäftigen) sein

    Corry, my dear, are very sweet you and I would love, a BLT bread-and-yielded with you to break; however you, which babelfish threads to have confused and which for the applicable lunch thread... is, seem them familiarly referred, but they are differently. But, since we like you, we leave you away with a warning..., It assuming to draw up your post in order to consent. If you not however the punishment servere (I read as, you others in another post -- something over cycles per second of ' S&M dungeons... employ) can be

    At the moment there's quite a lot of flirting on the board. I wonder if that's because it's cold in most of the world at the moment and people are thinking of indoor activities like cuddling and snuggling up in front of a fire. Who's a romantic here then?

    Au moment où il y a énormément de flirting sur le conseil. Je me demande si c'est parce qu'il fait froid dans la majeure partie du monde à l'heure actuelle et les gens pensent à des activités d'intérieur comme cuddling et snuggling vers le haut devant un feu. Qui est un romantique ici alors?

    Zum Zeitpunkt, wo es gewaltige flirting auf dem Rat gibt. Ich frage mich, ob es ist, weil er Kälte im Großteil der Welt macht momentan, und die Leute an Inneraktivitäten als cuddling und snuggling nach oben vor einem Feuer denken. Wer ist ein romantisches hier dann?

    Cuando, donde hay el flirting enorme en el consejo. Me pregunto que si es, porque hace el tiempo frío en la mayoría del mundo momentáneamente, y la gente piensa hacia arriba en actividades interiores como cuddling y snuggling antes de un fuego. ¿Quién entonces es un romántico aquí?

    Quando, onde há flirting enorme no conselho. Eu pergunto-me que se for, porque faz o tempo frio em a maioria do mundo momentaneamente, e os povos pensam para cima sobre atividades internas como cuddling e snuggling antes de um fogo. Quem é então aqui romântico '?

    When, where it has flirting enormous in the advice. I ask that he will be himself, because he momentarily makes the cold time in the majority of the world, and the peoples think for top on internal activities as cuddling and snuggling before a fire. Who is then here romantic '?
