I love my Google Alerts! I recently participated in an interview with StyleList, a comprehensive online fashion magazine, as part of their Indie Designer Interviews series, and it posted to their blog yesterday afternoon. Well, aparently it got picked up by WhyGossip.com and one or two other fashion blogs, so my daily Google Alert was full of article headers that featured the same little snippet from the interview. As I glanced over the alert, I realized that there was something a bit off about the WhyGossip one – the wording was different, and it took me a few seconds to realize that it had been run through some sort of online translator. I have no idea what language the original English text was translated into, or why it was then translated out of that language back into English, but the results are rather comical:
We’re pleased to introduce the fresh, modern designs of Lauren Markley. You can find the work of this Princeton, NJ based jewelry designer at her Etsy shop, AntiGenre.
We’re entertained to inform the fresh, recent designs of Lauren Markley. You crapper encounter the impact of this Princeton, NJ supported adornment specializer at her Etsy shop, AntiGenre.
Crapper. Yes, I am entertained to inform you that ‘crapper’ is the best translation of the word ‘can’. Oh my!
Anyway, please check out the full interview here at StyleList!
