TweetThis! KiSwahili has been added to Google Translation page, but....

I was so happy today to learn that a new language been added in the Google Translation page.
This means that you can have any text in any language or a link from any site translated to and from KiSwahili.
Well, it's not a perfect translation but at least one can get an understanding of what's been talked about in a text / page (but sometimes it might mislead you completely from the main idea, how will you know? Well, I suggest you find someone who understands both languages).

Here is the link: http://translate.google.com/?hl=en&sl=en&tl=sw#

I tried translating my blog and some posts left me laughing out loud -for example this one sentence from one of the many posts I tried, originally reads like this in English
The internships are 12 months in duration and will run from January 2010 to January 2011.
and when translated to KiSwahili, this is what I got
The praktikarbete ni miezi 12 katika duration na kukimbia kuanzia Januari 2010 hadi Januari 2011.
This was carried completely out of context:
However, there are restrictions for those in healthcare related fields, including dentistry, medicine, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine; please contact the DAAD New York office if your academic pursuits are in these fields.
Hata hivyo, kuna vikwazo kwa wale walio katika huduma ya afya kuhusiana na mashamba, pamoja Dentistry, dawa, pharmacy, na dawa za mifugo; tafadhali wasiliana na ofisi DAAD New York ikiwa ni yako Pursuits kitaaluma katika mashamba hayo.
Surely, this a very big and good step Google Translation team! I absolutely commend your good job but there is still work to be done. I hope you will improve this soon and help KiSwahlili and non KiSwahili speakers enjoy your free translation service!

My wonderful blog readers, as long as you understand both languages, I bet you are going to LOL.

BTW, LOL stands for Laughing Out Loud and BTW is By The Way.... LOL!
