Google Translation Bots Get Swear Words Right

While the translation bots are not famous for understanding human speech with great accuracy, one thing Google’s bots get right is swearing.

Google has just released a series of language translation bots that you can invite for a chat and that would act as simultaneous interpreter when you have a conversation with another foreign-language speaking human.

You probably don’t want to use it for important conversations: Israeli journalists recently got themselves into a diplomatic scandal when their translation software misfired and one of the questions to the Dutch Foreign Minister resulted in”The mother your visit in Israel is a sleep to the favor or to the bed.”

So. Google’s English to Russian bots translate “Let’s go drinking” as “Let’s find potable” and “Shipping up to Boston” as “Navigation to Pskov“. But swearing? Dead on.
