Google Lost in Translation

I saw this one on another board and thought it was funny. Using the Google translator, http://www.google.com/language_tools?hl=en , write a sentence of whatever you want in English. Next, translate it into Japanese. Then, take the translated sentence, and translate it into Russian. Lastly, translate this back into English, and see how your sentence has been altered!

Here's the steps in a simpler format:

1. Translate sentence from English to Japanese.
2. Translate from Japanese to Russian
3. Translate from Russian to English
4. Post your results back here! 😀

I'll start.

Let's see how good google really is at translating languages.

Translated...

Well, this is the actual language in the Google let's see.

I might overclock my GPU, but I hope that it does not explode.

Leveling Up

The question is, is this bad machine translation, which could be improved, or is it an artifact of the ambiguities of languages and the inherent differences in their grammar and syntax?

I went from swedish to english to japanese to russian to finnish to english on this one:

Google translate funkar inte alls bra. (Translation, Google translate doesn't work that well)

Google does not work all the translations.

Kinda close...

Not every flower can say love, but a rose can. Not every plant can survive thirst, but a cactus can. Not every retard can read... But look at you go.

We can say that not all the flowers of love, but you can climb. Not all cacti, but you can experience thirst. You can read ... but not all delays, please see you go.
