These fun Google Translate tricks will make Google say hilarious things using the “power” of a bad translation. Google translate is a popular feature from the search giant Google where you can enter any word or phrase into the text box and Google will translate it into almost any language known to men.
But we all know that as great as this feature is, and it really is, the translated words sometimes turn out to be completely wrong or even irrelevant. Google will likely improve the results of the translation algorithm, but until they do, there’s no reason not to have some fun with it.
In the gallery below we have collected 20 tricks you can work on on Google Translate that result in hilarious results that are sure to make you laugh. We can get Google to say funny things just by typing a few words into the search bar and we think it’s pretty cool.
1. GOOGLE TRANSLATE’S FIRST FUN TRICK IS RATHER SIMPLE, JUST MAKE GOOGLE SPEAK LIKE FLANDERS FROM THE SIMPSON.
This is actually not a real thing, so don’t look for it in translation, it’s the creation of Awkward Elevator and they just nailed it. That’s exactly how Ned would say these things and that’s why he had to be on this fun Google Translate list.
2. MAKE GOOGLE TRANSLATE PLAY A BEATBOX SOUND
Here’s how: first set the languages from German to German. Then write this text “pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch” now click Listen and start dancing. You can also just click this link and let you go.
3. SOMETIMES THE GOOGLE TRANSLATOR WILL JUST BE Lazy
Yes, even the mighty google can be lazy at times, if you type thirty five words, you will get a number in response, at least it’s not wrong right?
4. GOOGLE LOVES BRITNEY SPEARS IN ALL LANGUAGES
If you type in Lady Gaga and choose Malay as your source language and translate it into any language, you get Britney Spears. Google apparently really likes it, or it might just be a bug, you decide, but it’s definitely a fun Google Translate article.
5. POKEMON IN TURKISH
If you’ve ever wondered what Pokemon is like in Turkish, here’s how. simple and easy, I like it.
6. ANDROID IN GERMAN IS IPHONE (FOR A LITTLE)
This was a funny bug in the world of Google Translate. If you typed Android 2. 3. 4 in German, it has been translated into iPhone 2. 3. 4, but we noticed that the problem was quickly fixed by the Google team. But for a while, this created a hilarious Google Translate error.
7. THE BATTLE BETWEEN GOOGLE AND FACEBOOK
If you once typed the phrase “WE REALLY HATE THIS COMPANY” and chose Japanese, you will see the word FACEBOOK. This doesn’t happen anymore, which is a shame because it’s FUN! Some people even said it came out with funny letters but still, too bad it doesn’t work.
8. MEN ARE MEN AND THEY SHOULD CLEAN THE HOUSE
When you type the words “Men are men and men should clean the house” for some hilarious reason, when you translate it into Spanish it comes out as “Men are men and women should clean the house” another funny Google Translate mistake , I guess someone over there thought this should be automatically corrected. Isn’t it nice, big G. Is not beautiful.
9. THIS IS DEFINITELY STRANGE
If you typed the words “I will miss Heath Ledger” and translated into Spanish, the words “Voy a perder Tom Cruise”. This is really weird, it just happens when you try it with Heath Ledger, any other celebrity name will work just fine. It was later fixed, but you have to wonder how this weird Google Translate bug came about.
10. BJORK IS LALALALALA
When you try to translate the word lalalalala from English to Icelandic, the word that will be shown is Bjork. Which is obviously the famous Icelandic singer and the word lalalalala, but as we don’t speak the language, we will only accept that and any other words in Icelandic. NOT.
11. SAMSUNG AND SONY ERICSSON
For some weird reason, when you type the word Samsung from English to Romanian, the translation comes out as Sony Ericsson, weird AF, but not the funniest google translate fails on this list to be honest.
12. THIS IS A DANGEROUS GOOGLE TRANSLATE ERROR
If you type the words you see in the picture – We simply don’t want to repeat them for the sake of our readers, from English to German, you get a sick translation that someone should have noticed faster. If you change the record on the sentence, you can see that the Germans are pretty sick LOL. Just kidding, but this is a weird bug.
13. GOOGLE TRANSLATION ENGINE SOUND
Want to make Google Translate make funny engine sounds? Just type rrrrrrrrrr and translate it to Croatian and click the listen button, and enjoy.
14. SOUND EFFECT OF GOOGLE HELICOPTER.
Similar to the trick above, this hilarious Google Translate hack causes Google to make a helicopter sound. Just type the word kkkkkk and translate it into German. See what happens.
15. DO YOU WANT TO HEAR GOOGLE TRANSLATE SING?
This fun little trick will make Google sing, just type the dots before the words and translate them into Japanese. But make sure you click the listen button below the Japanese text and not the English one.
16. WE HAVE LIVED A LIE FOR SO LONG ON HAKUNA MATATA!
So it turns out that Hakuna Matata isn’t actually No Worries in Swahili. We’ve been living a lie for so long, I don’t know what’s real anymore. * Turn off the laptop crying in anger and running out to hide under a bush.
17. GOOGLE TRANSLATE BURNS JUSTIN BIEBER
Sometimes, things get out of hand, but this Google Translate burn is epic. When you type the words “Will justin Bieber ever hit puberty” and translate them to Vietnamese, then reverse them, you get “Justin Bieber reaches puberty” and the burn is complete.
