Machine Translation Experiment

Machine Translation Experiment

Aug 02

We all know Google Translate is bad at Japanese, but just how bad is it? I decided to run the previous chapter (62) through Google Translate, and this is the result. Here are the rules:

  1. Put all text (SFX too) verbatim into Google Translate. (Japanese⇒English)
  2. If a sentence is split across bubbles, do not combine them.
  3. All translations must be copied verbatim into the speech bubbles.

For full effect, I got Comic Sans MS to help me out.

Hello, everyone!

After the Christmas party, it’s the start of the new year!  The gang heads out for a shrine visit (JP: hatsumoude).

New Year, new volume, new chapter! I also recruited someone to help me out:  Praetors is my new teammate. Big thank you.
