Google Translate Fail!

So just out of curiosity, I tried to use google translate to see what the famous "lorem ipsum etc" text was when translated into english, and this is what I got… If you read the whole thing it's pretty funny.



BTW it really is Latin and it really does say something that makes sense.

Does anyone else have any Google Translate fails?

I don't think its the translator that fails, but the translation in itself...if that makes sense.

English is a common universal language, but a difficult one since it has fewer characters and one alphabet. That could disrupt any program from doing a proper translation.
