Adventures with Google TranslatorPosted: March 2, 2005
So I was in my office today, and the cleaning lady comes in. I ask her where to put glass bottles for recycling, but she doesn't understand English. So I try to say, “no, forget it”, but she either doesn't understand, or is insisting on helping me (I understand even less Spanish). So after 5 minutes of charades, I think of going to translate.google.com and typed in my question that way. I showed her the output, and she said “Oooooh – ¿dónde reciclo las botellas? apenas puesto le en la basura (just put it in the trash)”.
Anyway, thanks Google! You guys should make it into a commercial or something. After paying me, of course ;-)
