Google Translate Sings

Let's hear it for Malinda Kathleen Reese. She's done the important work of taking the lyrics of "Let It Go" (from the soundtrack to "Frozen", a film that I think is going to be very popular), translating them into Chinese, Macedonia, French, Polish, and Creole among other languages via Google Translate, and then translating them back into English again. The results arrive as gems like "Discrimination law is probably the queen", "Tune in and slam the door", and "On the rise for radiation".

And not only that, but she's filmed herself singing the results:

She's done the same for "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" ("the high street rainbow somewhere"):

"Bohemian Rhapsody" is pretty great too-- I'm not even going to quote any of this since the results don't bear any relation to the original:

Some great stuff, along the lines of Backstroke of the West. Thanks to Ms. Reese for the excellent work.
