    So, I'm trying to translate insulting phrases to yell at my friend. Because he's dumb.

    BUT, PROBLEM IS, the translation widget is taking FOREVER to actually translate anything.

    My internet connection is fast everywhere else, but it's taking 5+ minutes to translate "you smell like the queen's rump"!

    Is there any way to fix this?

    Yeah, I've noticed quite a slow down in the last week. It sucks. Hopefully it's just a server-side problem and it'll get fixed soon. Although, the website is pretty much instant.

    Same here, so it must be the server.

    Perhaps you need to resort to using pictures....

    The widget would have got you the same result AFAIK since I just typed it into the actual site that the widget uses. :eek:

    I love that you translated it to french. It couldn't be because of this:
    and some prejudice? Or maybe you just know her dumb friend.
    Man it made me laugh :D

    I've never like the French.

    Nah, French was the default on the site. It's also one of the very few languages I've ever studies.

    Crap that got me giggling.

    My Brain Reads: "translate for my dumb friend"
    Next Input: "Mad Jew translates to French, no questions asked"
    Next: Send action potential to Giggle Centre

    There's always good old Babel Fish if the widget isn't working (even when the widget is working, it doesn't work so well :mad: ) Same software, different servers.
