For those of us who have still not found a place in our translation routine for Google Translate - at least it is good at doing one thing!

1. Go to Google Translate
2. Set the language from German to German
3. Type in pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch
4. Press Listen.

Wow... Dec 2, 2010

If you translate it into Japanese you get an actual song:

ZKのZKの太陽光発電太陽電池太陽光発電太陽電池太陽光発電太陽電池太陽光発電ZKのカザフスタンZKのZKのZKのZKの太陽光発電PZK PZK pvzkpkzvpvzk Kkkkkk BSCH

Transcription:
ZK no ZK no taiyōkō hatsuden taiyō denchi taiyōkō hatsuden taiyō denchi taiyōkō hatsuden taiyō denchi taiyōkō hatsuden ZK no kazafusutan ZK no ZK no ZK no ZK no taiyōkō hatsuden PZK PZK pvzkpkzvpvzk Kkkkkk BSCH


Translate it into Latin and press play and you get something that sounds like music from Gigi D'agostino O.o


Chinese sounds like an airport anouncement...

Not my genius I'm afraid... Dec 2, 2010

Someone posted it on Facebook this morning...

http://www.geekosystem.com/how-to-make-google-translate-beatbox/

There are some other letter combinations which will give you different sounds!

But there are some funny things going around at the moment.
This is not translation related, but there are some Google Maps ones that are quite funny as well.

1. Go to Google Maps and Get Directions
2. Write Japan as your start point.
3. Write China as your destination.
4. Go to 43rd point on your route, and when you stop laughing, post this as your status, so that others can laugh too.

AND:

1. Go to Google Maps and Get Directions
2. Write Japan as your start point.
3. Write California as your destination.
4. Go to the 38th point on the directions

Hehehehe....

There's another one Dec 2, 2010

I found this one on a Latvian social network site: http://tinyurl.com/24a42uv
It's slightly different but it surely pretty much rocks, too

Interesting... Dec 2, 2010

What I find interesting (while listening to Google's next entry to American Idol) is that apparently, there is some hidden meaning in these syllables because if you actually let Google translate them, they are shifted around quite a bit and/or capitalized.. hmmm....
