Taste the Translation November 27, 2015Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Fun stuff, TGIF, Translation.
I read an interesting article this week called “A Translation Site’s Clever Recipe Taste Test Shows How Wrong Google Translate Can Be.” Apparently a translation agency, ElaN Languages, worked with an ad agency, JWT Amsterdam, to produce a project and video called “Taste the Translation.” The project’s video shows a chef cooking the same Japanese recipe as translated by ElaN’s team of human experts vs. Google Translate’s automated results. The ad has won several awards. The results are hilarious, as you can expect. I think they did a great job illustrating the difference between man vs. machine in our industry. I hope you enjoy it.
