Babelfish Goes to the Movies

Babelfish Goes to the Movies

The Winter Babelfish Spectacular continues this month with Babelfish Goes to the Movies, in which we use the translation program Babelfish to translate movie titles from English into other languages and then back again. For example:

English: That lipstick is a lovely shade of red!
Spanish: Ese lapiz labial es una cortina encantadora del rojo!
English: That labial pencil is a charming curtain of the red one!
Note: on occassion, we may translate phrases into German, because German is funny.
