I translated and retranslated it again;

"Populace over, upon vessel family shouldn't scatter the heel"

And again;

"Populace over, upon , over, upon vessel family shouldn't scatter the heel"

And again;

"Populace over, upon , over, upon , over, upon , over, upon vessel family shouldn't scatter the heel"

I hate to think of anyone who relies on this crappy translator site for an important essay. :lol:

Wow! I just tried the English into Welsh then back into English and it was spot on! :lol:

In Filipino Tagalog the whole meaning changes;

"people in glass tenement must throw stone"

Here's the site if anyone wants to play;

(I translated "People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" into Latin, then translated it back to English)

This crappy Latin translator will keep me amused for days! :lol:

This is how - It takes one to know one!

comes out - Capit unus scio unus

and then back again to... He takes one to know one :P

This is a sexist site! :shock: I was always deeply suspicious of any language that assigns the sexuality of proper nouns willy nilly :wink:

Let's see what it does with - Little things please little minds :twisted:

Parum res commodo parum mens

and back - Too little occurrence to make fit too little mind :lol:

I just translated: 'necessity is the mother of invention' to 'necesse est matris of reperio' and back to: 'necessary is mother of to meet with!

Also: 'The turtle does move' = turtle does permoveo = turtle does to excite!!!

I was using translation-guide.com. They must all be of equal standard!

KEEP those Excited Turtles away from me...!!

I can only hope it gets better with time Chris.ph... I am getting ready to undergo some really painful tests that make me wish I had been born a man... and Not just for the extra pay and that Owning a Wang thingy.

I asked my husband if I could start being hysterical now, and he said it was ok with him. Frankly, these scare the patootie out of me. Now I am sure to find out what Patootie means in every language.

Now Tina, why on Earth would you want a Wang thingy? It controls men's minds to such an extent that they can't even see the joy that is shopping, in order to spend all that extra pay. So we do it for them :twisted:

Yes, yes, I know that was sexist :roll:

Well, you are correct, and no it is NOT sexist... at lesst it is a female doctor. It is just the places they want to inject contrast dye and other horrid things that are scaring me into a mildly catatonic state. Sheer panic

oh and on another sexist topic... Tony put a picture of a "manogram" on the funny page thread and my husband said that IF that were the case, there would be a cure really dam quick. :lol:
