just read this book and understand some point of views of singaporean people...you are not forever there!




Ozi, you are not here at all. I lived 30 years of my life in Singapore. You have no clue what you are talking about Singapore

BTW you do not come here threatening all of us not to mess with you.

Are we even sure it's a real person? For all we know it's some sort of AI (Artificial Intelligence) project unleashed into the internet. :P The sentence construction and word selection feels like it's from an online translator.

So I wonder if I can make my post look like I've used Babelfish, what I'll do is type something, change it to Turkish via Google translate and then change it back to English using Babelfish..

Ben Babelfish kullanmış olduğunuz gibi Postama görünmesini sağlayabilirsiniz Yani merak ediyorum, ne yapacağım türü bir şey, Google translate ile Türkçe olarak değiştirin ve sonra Babelfish kullanarak İngilizce geri değiştirmek ..

She scolds my mail as she has become the I Babelfish has used you can provide Yani curiosity I am doing or what I will do the kind you change a thing and Google while becoming translate and Turkish language and while later using English Make valuable backward..


WTF??? I never thought it would be so f**ked up!

I used Babylon to change back to English, Babelfish didn't have Turkish.... Learn something new everyday!

I think this guy should get a job translating Turkish to English, because, Babylon (http://translation.babylon.com/turkish/to-english/) sucks a$$ big time! I guess his English maybe isn't so bad after all! ;)

Try Google Translate.... well, I know it works pretty well with German. It also has a button to play the translated text. I use it to communicate with my illiterate house-cleaner! :)

Yeah Google translate on the iphone is good, you can talk to it in English and it will say what you said in the language of choice

I used google translate to translate to Turkish and Babylon to translate back to English...

OIC. So it's voice recognition in is it? That's always been prone to error until you've gone through a process of training the app to recognise your voice.

Yep agreed the ability to accurately recognise by VR has certainly improved. It used to be that before even trying to use a VR programme you had to read a script of words that took hours, twice over!
