This post is a compilation of one particular quirk that keeps showing up with unfailing regularity in the Twitter app on Nokia Lumia 720 whereby the ‘translated from’ language is often shown erroneously. A stray translation mistake here or there is understandable, and maybe, even acceptable. As it is, the translation volunteered by the system in most cases isn’t even unnecessary. But over time this has turned into an amusing exercise to get surprised with what random ‘translated from’ language gets thrown up next. —-
#1: POLISH #2: ESTONIAN
#3: DANISH #4: HAITIAN-CREOLE
#5: MALAY #6: SLOVENIAN
#7: INDONESIAN #8: DUTCH
#9: FRENCH #10: PORTUGEUSE
And yes finally, it identified HINDI correctly!
BUT whether it translated that correctly… well, that’s a subject we may take up some other time.
