5 Funny / Stupid Things You Can Do with Google Translate

5 Funny / Stupid Things You Can Do with Google Translate

HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHello there. If youurrrrrrrrrrrrr anything like me, you enjoyyyyyyyyyyyyy mmmmmmmmmmmmaking hilarrrrrrrrrrrious sounds using Goooooooooooooooogle Translate. Why am I elooooooooooooooonggating my vooooooooooooooowells? It's ppaaaaaaaaaaaart of the jooooooooooooooke. Reeeeeeeeeeead oooooooon to seeeeeeeeeeeeee whyyyyyyyyyyyyy:

Google Translate also has a humorous side. Let's say you're bored at work but have limited access to hilariously awesome sites like ours. What can you do to pass the time? Why not try entering some gibberish into Google Translate and seeing what kind of noises your computer makes. It's fun! It's stupid! And it's why I love Google a lot!


One slightly funny thing you can do with Google Translate is turn the service into a beatboxing machine. Just paste the following text into Google Translate:

pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk pv zk bschk pv zk pv bschk zk bschk pv bschk bschk pv kkkkkkkkkk bschk

...And press "beatbox" to hear your sound creation.

Create Techno Music

Or, to hear the techno version, select Chinese to Chinse. Clearly, some programmers were suuuper bored.

Rev Up an Oldsmobile

If you type in these words:

vvv vvv vvv vvv vvv vvv vvv vvv bbbb bbbb vvv bbb bbbbbbb kkkk gggggg ggg ggg ggg ggg ggg

Google Translate will make the sound of an engine revving up. Because, why the hell not?

Saw Some Wood

You know what sounds like wood being sawed? Translating words from Portuguese to Spanish. Not sure what kind of cultural commentary Google Translate intended with this one, but when you translate the following string of text from Portuguese to Spanish, it will sound like a beam of wood getting pulverized:


Hear a Danish Man Laughing at You

You know what my day needs more of? Danish men laughing at me. I really would like some Danish laughs in my face. That would brighten my day for sure. So I'm just going to enter in the following words:


Then hit "Danish to Danish" and...welll...yeah. 

OOOOOOOOOkie dokie then. Anyone else have more Google Translate tips and / or tricks?
