Google Translate Fail

In this 2 star assignment, I had to find a website that was in a foreign language and laugh at how awful the translation is when pressing the translate to English button using Google Chrome. This was pretty easy assignment because I already had an idea what website I was going to look at in a different language.

That site was the Spanish NBA website, which I had heard about in one of my other classes this semester. So I went to the website using Google Chrome and pressed the translate button after reading what it said in Spanish. I was able to read what it said because I took Spanish in college, and I had the ability to read Spanish very clear after taking the course; the only thing that I have trouble with in Spanish is speaking and listening to it.

From translating it to English, the only mistakes that I could find was examples where the English translation didn’t pick up some of the Spanish, so it was kept in Spanish still.

Other than this clear mistake, there weren’t any other mistakes on the website, so I have to give credit to Google for having a pretty accurate translation tool. For 2 stars, this assignment was characterized perfectly and I wish there were more easy assignments like this one. Here is a link to the website where I used the Google Translate.
