It's simple really. Just take something that you've gotten from The Bad Translator and paste is here

For example:

"Hey Sam, is "Pronto" a real word?"

...35 translations later Bing gives us:

"Tuesday is a good thing."

  • "I would walk five hundred miles, and I would walk five hundred more just to be the man who walked one thousand miles to fall down at your door."

    ...35 translations later Bing gives us:

    "500 Miles, killed more than 500 Tin Bowl."

    oh... Oh dear.

    "twelve"

    ...35 translations later Bing gives us:

    "(12)"

    Very well

    "It's a murder mystery without a murder."

    ...35 translations later Bing gives us:

    "In パズル between them."

    Something went wrong somewhere in Japanese

  • "I love TomPravetz."

    ...10 translations later Bing gives us:

    "Ma tombravitz."

  • "How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?"

    ...10 translations later Bing gives us:

    "Wood wood, you can save a lot of wood, to disk?"

  • What I put in:

    "Profanity! O, pusillanimous prat! Pure and pleasant prose predominates this particular pointless palaver."

    What I got back:

    "In this language. Social responsibility of companies and the first winter Argp Sf strategy."

    Not a single p-word. I has a sad.

    Actually, I tried it again just for giggles and I got something completely different: "Language. This funky. The default location of the Skaktens science fiction and Sarah."

    ...The hell?

  • Original text:

    "Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath bore me on his back a thousand times, and now how abhorr'd in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it."

    ...10 translations later Bing gives us:

    "It is a shame, if poor people in New York! I knew him, Horatio, excellent invinitigist wise colleagues. Born today a great transitional provisions back to the athosand! According to my, an increase in the Gorge."


    Sounds legit.


    Dude, where's my car?"

    ...30 translations later Bing gives us:

    "Tools for me and my friend?"

  • I put in a phrase and got the same one back after 35. I was disappointed. Tried another:

    "Where sat the warrior, the poet. Now lie the fragments of a man."
    ...35 translations later Bing gives us:
    "NAC dvd now black, as we know it"

    ...fun times....

    "a skeleton in the closet"
    ...35 translations later Bing gives us:
    "(Company)"

    ...well, I guess it would be, wouldn't it?


    ...my name immediately translates from arabic to "Guru"....awkward...

  • ...What the hell did you manage to feed it that came back the same? That's not disappointing, that's a freaking accomplishment.

    I guess Pink Floyd is just THAT awesome. You have to leave it in order though because it does change a few times, but other languages correct it.

    ...35 translations later Bing gives us:

    "Sam"

    The translator's apparently seen the end of The Devil's Playhouse

    "So goodbye yellow brick road Where the dogs of society howl You can't plant me in your penthouse I'm going back to my plough Back to the howling old owl in the woods Hunting the horny back toad Oh I've finally decided my future lies Beyond the yellow brick road"

    ...35 translations later Bing gives us:

    "Community PenthouseI-RoadWhere-HowlYou, "he said, however, The dog does not accept PloughBack WoodsHunting Mugissante Liesbeyond? ToadOh Nogueira, yellow OWL. Adult math."
    Love the random addition of Adult math to the end, as I always wondered what Elton John was going on about!
