These funny google translate tricks will make Google say hilarious things by using the ” power ” of bad translation. Google translate is a popular feature by the search giant Google where you can input any word or sentence into the text box and google will translate it to almost any language known to men.
But we all know that as much as this feature is awesome, and it really is, the translated words sometimes come out completely wrong or even irrelevant. Google will probably improve the results of the translate algorithm but until they do, there’s no reason not to have a little fun with it.
In the gallery below we collected 20 tricks you can work on Google Translate that result in hilarious outcomes that will definitely make you laugh. We can make Google say funny things just by typing a few words into the search bar and we think it’s pretty cool.
1. The first google translate funny trick is pretty basic, just make Google talk like Flanders from The Simpson.
This is actually not a real thing, so don’t go looking for it on the translate, it’s the creation of Awkward Elevator and they just nailed it. This is exactly how would Ned say these things and that’s why it had to be on this funny google translate list.
2. Make google translate do a beatbox sound
Here’s how: First set the languages to German to German. Next write down this text ” pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch ” now just click Listen and start dancing. You can also just click this link and let loose.
3. Sometimes google translator will just be lazy
Yup, even the mighty google can sometimes be lazy, if you type in the words thirty five, you will receive a number in response, at least it’s not wrong right?
4. Google loves Britney Spears in all languages
If you type Lady Gaga and choose Malay as the source language and translate it to any language, you get, Britney Spears. Apparently Google really likes her, or it could just be a bug, you decide, but it sure makes for a funny google translate item.
5. Pokemon in Turkish
If you ever wondered how to say Pokemon in Turkish, this is how. simple and easy, I like it.
6. Android in German is iPhone ( for a while )
This was a funny bug in the google translate world. If you typed Android 2.3.4 in German it was translated to iPhone 2.3.4, but we noticed this was quickly fixed by the google team. But for a while, this made for an hilarious google translate mistake.
7. The Google Vs Facebook battle
If you once typed the phrase ” WE REALLY HATE THIS COMPANY ” and choosed Japanese, you will see the word FACEBOOK. This doesn’t happen anymore, and it’s shame because it’s HILARIOUS! Some people also said that it came out with funny letters but still, too bad it’s not working.
8. Men are men and should clean the house
When you type in the words ” Men are men and men should clean the house ” for some hilarious reason, when you translate it to Spanish it comes out as ” Men are men and women should clean the house” another funny google translate mistake, I guess someone over there thought this should be auto corrected. Not cool big G. Not cool.
9. This is a weird one for sure
If you typed the words ” I will miss Heath Ledger ” and translated it to Spanish, the words ” Voy a perder Tom Cruise “. This is really weird, it also only happens when you tried it with Heath Ledger, any other celebrity name will work just fine. It was later fixed, but you have to wonder how this weird google translate bug every came to be.
10. Bjork is Lalalalala
When you try to translate the word lalalalala from english to Icelandic, the word that will show is Bjork. Which is obviously the famous Icelandic singer and the word lalalalala, but because we don’t speak the language, we will just accept it and any other word in Icelandic. NOT.
11. Samsung and Sony Ericsson
For some odd reason, when you type in the word Samsung from english to Romanian, the translation comes out as Sony Ericsson, weird AF, but not the funniest google translate fail on this list to be honest.
12. This is a dangerous google translate fail
If you type the words you see in the photo – We just don’t want to repeat them for the sake of our readers, from english to German, you get a sick translation that someone should have noticed faster. If you switch the disc on the phrase, you can see that the Germans are pretty sick LOL. Just kidding, but this is a weird bug.

15. Wanna hear google translate sing?
This little fun trick will make google sing, just type dots before your words and translate them into Japanese. But make sure to click the listen button under the Japanese text and not the english one.
16. We lived in a lie for so long about Hakuna Matata!
So it turns out that Hakuna Matata is not actually No Worries in Swahili. We lived a lie for so long, I don’t know what’s real anymore. *shutting down laptop in crying anger and running outside to hide under a bush.
17. Google translate burns Justin Bieber
Sometimes, things get out of hand, but this google translate burn is epic. When you type in the words ” Will Justin Bieber ever hit puberty ” and translate it into Vietnamese, then reverse it, you get ” Does Justin Bieber reach puberty ” and the burn is complete.
18. You can still trick the translate bot when you mess with him, for example Vietnamese:
Just translate ” Gift that keeps on giving ” into Vietnamese, and you will get: những món quà không ngừng đưa ra, which is then translated back to: ” the gift is constantly offered ” in English, or ” No, delicious, delicious ” when translated back into Vietnamese again. Confused? So is Google
