      To post author: Hungary is a country, the name of language Hungary has is Hungarian.

      What you said sounds like this: From Spanish language to England. Doesn't make any sense, does it?

      Come on, guys, these are all stupid. Try this out: Translate "dismissive snort" English to Russian, then back.

      If you type "e n g l i s h" and try to translate it to some languages it will translate weirdly to all languages except for Russian to which it will translate like "R U S S I S ch" which is kinda like russian.

      Try listening to this next one in any language, especially Russian (even if you don't understand it you'll have fun( note that in Russian "a" sounds like [/\]))

      a. aa. aaa. aaaa. aaaaa. aaaaaa. aaaaaaa. aaaaaaaa. aaaaaaaaa. aaaaaaaaaa

      Experiment with Albanian sounds, they are completely hilarious! For example if you type anything in Cyrillic it'll sound like "shtron yakepër prerë"( it doesn't mean anything).

      But the funniest of all you'll discover yourself! Type any sentence of existing words no matter if it does or doesn't make sense and translate it through(to one, then from current to another... and back to where you started) a couple of languages. The results will usually amaze you! My preferable route is English,Latin,Arabic,Russian,Bengal,Hebrew,English (Well, by English I meant the starting language).

      And lastly: Pse e keni përkthyer këtë?

      Note: All translations done on the mobile(IOS) edition of Google Translate and yes, I'm Russian.

      They seem to have corrected the translation results. The translation result we should get before they corrected it was Superman.
