Freetranslation cycle

Go to freetranslation.com, translate some English into another language, and then convert it back to english.

ENGLISH:

I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America
and to the Republic for which it stands,
one Nation under God,
indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

JAPANESE:

(Japanese characters won’t display in my browser)

BACK TO ENGLISH:

United States of America of flag to and that I swears the loyalty to the republic of condition without being able to divide God below 1 country with the justice for all with freedom.

Now doing it just in Dutch is so funny, you don’t even have to convert it back to English for a laugh

Ik Beloof Getrouwheid naar de vlag van de Verenigde Staten van Amerika
en naar de Republiek waarvoor het
staat, een Natie onder God,
onverdeelbaar, met vrijheid en gerechtigheid voor iedereen.

ik beloof! It’s like the Swedish chef on the Muppets! Heeda Hooda Herda!

(By the way, I covered this back in 2003, but I didn’t have a cool name for it, like I do now, “freetranslation cycle”)
