Google Translate Has Been Saying Some WILD Stuff Lately

posted by Erik Zachary - 

Remember when Alexa was saying things and laughing on her own? This just might beat that. Google Translate has recently been spewing religious prophecies as nonsensical translations for several different languages. For example, "dog" typed 19 times and translated from Maori to English, according to Google Translate, translates to "Doomsday Clock is three minutes at twelve We are experiencing characters and a dramatic developments in the world, which indicate that we are increasingly approaching the end times and Jesus' return." I'm sorry. What?! It's raised many questions from Redditors all over. Some suggest ghosts and demons have "hacked" into the 10 year service while others believe just Google employees trolling everyone. See the full story and other bizarre translations here.

WHAT IS GOING ON? Google Translate has been spitting out bizarre religious prophecies. This is just one of many ominous translations that users on Reddit and elsewhere have dredged up from Google Translate, Google’s decade-old service that can now interpret messages in over 100 languages. In Somali, for instance, strings of the word “ag” translate into missives about the “sons of Gershon,” the “name of the LORD,” and references to Biblical terminology like “cubits” and Deuteronomy.
