Looks good! It passes the ‘circular translation test’ – putting the Spanish back into Google Translate gets the original English that we wanted translated. As an aside, if you ever find yourself online with some time to kill, play a game of ‘telephone’ with an online translation tool: start with a phrase, and translate it from English through one or several languages. When you think it’s sufficiently scrambled, translate it back to English and see how far off it is.

English > Hungarian > Serbian > Icelandic > English =

Lookin 'good! This corresponds to the 'circular translation' - put the Spanish back to English with Google Translate on the original, we mean that aside, if you ever find yourself in line for some time to kill, play a game. " Phone "is an online translation tool: the beginning of sentences and the English translation of one or more languages, if you think you have scrambled eggs, translated into English back and see how far ..


Nevermind the hoohaa at the top about Spanish/English translation, I only kept it in because I didn't want to re-translate the rest of the statement without it.

GO FORTH, SCRAMBLE, AND POST!
BOO

Cool, thanks. I was thinking about making a more configurable one, were you could specify or do random for the languages and order that they're in so that you could tweak it to get the perfect level of engrish.
BOO

Thanks. Especially thanks RB.
I got the verse from System of a Down's Prison Song:

Following the rights movements You clamped on with your iron fists Drugs became conveniently Available for all the kids Following the rights movements You clamped on with your iron fists Drugs became conveniently Available for all the kids Ooh, I buy"

to:

As a movement for human rights, remedies are available to all children who moved to the right iron fist, iron fist of momentum in the implementation of all children in the drug ah, I bought
Today's post brought to you by the letter: "heck".
