Miscellaneous Musing by Judy @ 7:58 AM
tags: ,

In searching for a Latin dictionary to make sure I spelled requiescat in pace correctly (spelling… not my strong suit), I ran across the Free Online English To Latin Translator. Not limited to English and Latin, it will translate either a phrase or an entire web page from a dozen languages to a dozen languages, all for the nominal fee of $zero.

It’s fun to play with. Want to read Pertinax Simulatus instead of Persistent Illusion? No problemo.

I had the most fun, though, in translating from English to English. One would think that the oustput would be substantially similar to the input, but that is not actually the case. There must be several “interesting” intermediate steps.

In the previous post, I said:

There’s a rumor that the Homeland Security Threat Advisory System of colors and threat levels will be discontinued. I’m sorry to announce that, should that prove to be the case, the Persistent Illusion Magical Lucky Charms level will also cease to be. Requiescat in pace.

This is helpfully translated from English to English as:

In situ’ a publish special loveDisplaced Safety Defiance Expedient Order incomplete variegation with defiance be uniform resolution exist be discontinuous. Im’ unimportant be the cause of predict special, support special number be the cause of exist, loveLive to fight again Imperfect vision Magic Opportune Motive be uniform resolution also discontinue be the cause of exist. Requiescat internal successive change of place.

I hope I’ve made that perfectly clear!
