I know that. But the very best use of Google Translate is this.

Yeah, that's a lot of fun. I used to do that manually before a website was made that automagically did it.

Usually if I must /try/ to convert an email to another language, I do one loop through and then look for the glaring mistranslations to rephrase. It comes out pidgin-English usually, but that's the best you can hope for without a.) getting a friend or a professional to translate or b.) getting education. But that's only if I can't find a friend to do it. laugh

Sixtoe's translations even appear in a list on a Japanese web site. "Don Bear Near" is right above Dunkmania, "Rhinoceros Bar Command" is below Ridge Racer 2 and "Ray Blurring - Sir" is below Downhill Bikers.

What was "Ray Blurring - Sir" a mistranslation of? RayStorm?

I'd have thought it was a jumbling of Rave Racer, except that list says that whatever it is was a Super System 22 game.

It's Rave Racer - "re-bu re-sa-" somehow got split into "re- bure - sa-" and the translation engine decided the second word was "blurring".

Heh - even Wikipedia blindly copies lists from System 16. So much for requiring reliable sources - they just use that as an excuse to delete stuff they don't like.
