"HATE" is to use Facebook - Google Translation said.

Hi, it is NISHIO Hirokazu. My colleague SUZUKI Shoma told me an interesting miss-translation.

"He HATE it" means "He uses Facebook" in Japanese, Google Translation answers such a ridiculous translation.



I'm interested in why it happened. Maybe Google Translation uses machine learning from their corpus and in it "HATE" and "use Facebook" may strongly related. What a strange corpus is it! Where it come from?



P.S.
SUZUKI Shoma said the original is Google Translate Answers What Most Googlers Won't.

I hated the new Facebook profile and it's taken me ages to get used to it but then I hated it last time they changed it too. Which means I'm either stuck in my ways or that I've been on Facebook for way too long. Facebook Password Hack

In a multicultural society decisions about what is translated and how the translation is done have far-reaching implications for the inclusion and exclusion of certain communities and/or community members. Chinese Translator
