This is hilarious! https://twitter.com/shitduosays A big thanks to the creators of this, you've made my day!! ^^
This. is. so. funny. xD
"I do not have a conscience"
-your answer is correct.
"I am ready to die"
-your answer is correct.... uh..
My favorite is "If I see it is a spider, I run." ^^ I was translating that sentence aloud, and didn't even realize what I had said until my brother started cracking up. :D
Yeah I used to type something surprisingly funny like "There are snakes in my boots"
my favorite is "kaputt ist kaputt", but it's just because it sounds funny
One of them: I am a cow. HAHAHHAHAHAHA that's not very nice to say, esp. to the person who is typing. But still! LOL.
LOL.... Anyway, I know this is a crowdsourcing project by the Kapcha creator. With kapcha they were sending people shots of sentences to traspose in digital form. In other words people were acting as human OCRs. Characters normal OCRs could not recognise were recognised by people.
The same goes here. The sum of our ignorance should be able to create a professional translation service. Hence, at a certain point of our study, they should send us some sentences they want to translate and there should be an algorithm determining, depending on our answers, the best translation of a passage. Hence we should already be translating books, articles, etc. Maybe eve horror or sci-fi materials :)
Here it's all explained straight from the horse's mouth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQl6jUjFjp4
