 Simple Fun With Google Translate

Many things Google has unveiled in recent years have been pretty cool and definitely worth while. While this is fun, it is not so fun in certain languages. However, when you use Google Translate for other languages and other features, it’s really pretty cool! For example, trying to translate Arabic to English doesn’t work out so well, because not only does it not translate to English, but then you can’t view the original Arabic sentence to begin with. French, is a much more accurate language to translate. The translations can’t necessarily be trusted as being perfect, but it’s a quick fix when you need it and it’s definitely useful for translating emails, forum messages or even entire websites. But the fun doesn’t stop there. CHeck out more features below:

Beatbox

This is extremely fun! This is a hidden feature but one that works. Paste the following text into Google Translate:

pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpvpvzk kkkkk bsch

Select German to German translation, and press Beatbox. Google has clearly embraced this discovery, replacing the Listen button with a Beatbox button. Or you can get a Techno option by beatboxing your translation from Chinese to Chinese.

Create Sound Effects

Once you try beatbox, try making other random sound effects. Try typing in “r” about 40 or so times, to receive the sound effect of a machine, old car, or even chainsaw and select Croatian to Croatian translation. Or you can get the sound of a helicopter by typing in the letter “k” many times and translating from German to German. Pretty funny stuff. Experiment on your own and let me know what other fun stuff you come up with!

Translate Twitter Messages Automatically

You can have any Twitter message you see in a different language other than your own translated to the language of your choice. This is something that is actually currently being rolled out to all Twitter accounts, but in the meantime, try it this way.

Miscellaneous

You can chat with friends in other languages, call a restaurant an order takeout in the language that restaurant generally would speak, such as order Mexican food in Spanish or order Indian food in Hindi, just to name a few.
