For now, at least, Google Translate isn't as accurate as a human translator. Words tend to slip and slide as if on ice, and the more translations you pile onto a single phrase, the stranger and more awkward it becomes.
Vassar College student Malinda Kathleen Reese recently performed a lyrical experiment where she used the site to translate "Let It Go," the song from Disney's "Frozen" that has taken over the Internet, one-by-one through a dozen languages.
The results are hilarious, as expected.
Reese warns in the description that she "can't belt like Idina Menzel," but if we're being honest, the power of her voice delivering the truly ridiculous lyrics was half the fun.
