The game of telephone – on a web site

September 10, 2006 | By | Reply More

Here’s a fun site.  Did you ever play “telephone” as a child?  Check out this clever websiteLost in Translation.   It takes advantage of the successive use of good quality Internet language translators.  It will convert an English passage into a different language and back to English, five times in succession.  Your starting passage will probably not resemble the end product.

If you need to make a big presentation at work, run that presentation through this site first to keep the audience members on their toes.
