    Here is what Google translate shows me:

    Original text (Latin Detected):

    Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetuer velit pretium euismod ipsum enim. Mi cursus at a mollis senectus id arcu gravida quis urna. Sed et felis id tempus Morbi mauris tincidunt enim In mauris. Pede eu risus velit libero natoque enim lorem adipiscing ipsum consequat. In malesuada et sociis tincidunt tempus pellentesque cursus convallis ipsum Suspendisse. Risus In ac quis ut Nunc convallis laoreet ante Suspendisse Nam. Amet amet urna condimentum Vestibulum sem at Curabitur lorem et cursus. Sodales tortor fermentum leo dui habitant Nunc Sed Vestibulum. Ut lorem In penatibus libero id ipsum sagittis nec elit Sed. Condimentum eget Vivamus vel consectetuer lorem molestie turpis amet tellus id. Condimentum vel ridiculus Fusce sed pede Nam nunc sodales eros tempor. Sit lacus magna dictumst Curabitur fringilla auctor id vitae wisi facilisi. Fermentum eget turpis felis velit leo Nunc Proin orci molestie Praesent. Curabitur tellus scelerisque suscipit ut sem amet cursus mi Morbi

    Translation in English:

    It's random stupid intelligence, and not real AI! Google translate will only give you a different meaning of a word AS INPUTTED/INTERPRETED by its users RANDOMLY.

    If you click on any translated word, you'll see a popup with lots of different meanings (not exact synonyms really) attached to that word. What Google Translate (G.T.) does is it takes the words from those ridiculous "synonyms" and makes a sentence (rather, a bunch of words) for you. It is almost impossible, imo, to send someone a jumbled cryptic words to another person and make a secret message USING G.T. The person can send a better secret sentence using their own secret code book.

    It's acting the same way as TBS on auto-pilot, btw TBS will beat GT in being more rational because the users of TBS are saving better synonyms into it than GT's users are into GT!


    For example:
    lorem lorem = China's Internet
    BUT it also shows as:
    Lorem lorem = Business on the Internet
    Lorem lorem lorem = Chinese Internet technology
    lorem lorem Lorem lorem = China

    Lorem ipsum quis urna = We push :D:D
    ipsum ipsum lorem = to the Internet

    Fermentum eget = Fermentum own
    BUT...
    Fermentum lorem eget = Troubleshooting Internet development
    ???!!! and...
    lorem Fermentum lorem eget = China's energy needs and Troubleshooting
    lorem Fermentum lorem cursus = Internet Troubleshooting Internet courses

    lorem lorem ipsum cursus = China's vehicle market
    BUT
    lorem ipsum cursus = Free Course
    AND
    cursus ipsum adipiscing cursus = Chinese undergraduate courses
    cursus cursus Suspendisse = parenting courses
    eros ipsum = United States itself









    Google translate... sux!
