Wilson Phillips vs. Web Translators
It’s time for another round of Fun with Web Translators. Last time, we butchered the Gettysburg Address. This time, we’re taking the lyrics to Wilson Phillips’ timeless song “Impulsive,” translating them into other languages, then translating them back into English via the infallible (hah!) auto-translator at babel.altavista.com.
Then, as a special bonus, I’m going to attempt to translate “Impulsive” into Latin (no, these are not the crazy excursions of an idle summer staffer in academia. This is my definition of a break from an actually hectic summer as a staffer in academia.)
