This blog in Bahasa Melayu

I like to explore new places on the internet. The internet is such a big and dynamic place that you just simply claim to have seen it all. Even if you have seen it all, there will always be new contents and ideas coming up.

And I really enjoy clicking on the links people put on up their site. There is always something new and interesting to see when you click on the links. Sometimes I can go on for hours, clicking on the links till they reach a dead-end (when some blogger does not actually have any links on his or her page -- that is so sad).

Recently, my 'exploration' led me to a very useful and interesting site. It was to a website that could translate any English webpage to Bahasa Melayu (Malaysia's national language). I thought it would be fun to try it out on my blog...

My blog sounds weird in Bahase Melayu and how come 'everytime' is not translated

Since I had just recently posted some poems I wrote long, long time ago, it would be nice to see how they turned out in Bahasa Melayu (BM). Who knows? Maybe I end up being the next modern sasterawan and get my work printed in the school text books...

What?! 'Adakah anda mahu setiap hari'? Sounds like porn to me la...

Adakah anda mahu setiap hari translated back to English means "Do you want everyday". But when you read it, it just sounds so... sexual. There goes my chances of getting into school textbooks.

But seriously, I think Linguamatix is doing a great job! We can't really accurately translate contents from one language to another since you have things like grammer, slang, etc that just can't be translated properly. Heck, my wife have problems understanding me even when we speak the same language. Example:
Me: Have you taken your bath yet? (being concerned since its getting late)
Wife: Basket, so you implying that I'm smelly?!
(just kidding la... the above does not happen)

To translate any page to BM, just head over to www.linguamatix.com/linguaweb/ and click on Laman Web. Then enter the URL and click Terjemah (note: instructions might not be accurate since Linguamatix can change their page design at anytime). Enjoy and happy learning!
