Google translates 'India' to 'Pakistan' in Urdu

    Go to Google Translate and Type 'India is my Country' and translate to Urdu. It translates it as 'Pakistan is my country'.  For those of you who cannot decipher Urdu, can translate the sentence in Urdu to English and check the blunder by Google. However if you translate 'Pakistan is my country', it gives the correct translation. So do you think that this is just a technical glitch from Google or an intentional error?

      Haha, that's so funny. I can read the Arabic script so I can see the word "Pakistan" there.

      I tried a few other sentences with India in them and they all seem to translate fine ("Bharat" being the native term for India, I assume it's the same in Urdu)

      Very interesting.

      Actually, when you click on the word for Pakistan, it gives "alternate translations" and one of them is Bharat (India), lol!

      Right above it indicates this is the early stage of development for this particular language, so yeah probably unintentional.

      Still, pretty funny.

        Yeah this is a big time blunder by Google Translate. It was unexpected from them though.

    Which does prove that Goggle translate is not as accurate as some people might think it is.

    It might be an error we need to correct by sending mails to them

    Yes Mellyunplugged... Google shows some special affiliation with Pakistan. It was noticed that there was an honorable logo for Pakistan's Independence day on 14 August was published at the site as it do for many important events of history. But amazing thing is that the next day on 15 August, India got independence and that was not shown! We can say that is co-incidence, but as you mentioned, that is quite exciting smile

      In 2011, as you said, Google displayed a doodle on the eve of Pakistan's Independence day. However, in 2012 they made sure that they had a doodle on both Pakistans Independence day and Indian Independence day. Anyways, the translator error is unbelievable and unexpected from Google considering the political importance of  this.
