Mission Statement


Overview

The above text is the result of pasting Google’s “Mission Statement” into Google Translate and processing the text into the first language listed in the online program’s drop down menu, which in this instance was Afrikaans. The result was then directly translated into the next language on the list (Albanian) and so on until the process was completed with Zulu. The results were then inputed individually into the software and translated back to English. In some instances, where there appeared to be technical issues (as opposed to to faulty renditions) a language was omitted, Nepali for example, stumbled at producing anything Norwegian was able to work with. Aside from these the experiment was conducted by cutting and pasting the exact text delivered by the software.
