    Google Translate, the translation service of Google, has allowed a major blunder to creep into its service when anyone attempts to translate ‘India is my country’ to Urdu. Because, what comes out in Urdu text is ‘Pakistan is my country’.

    If the reverse process is attempted by pasting the same Urdu text for translation into English, what comes up is ‘Pakistan is my country.’

    It seems more of a mischievous error than a mechanical one as no other reference to India is translated to Urdu as Pakistan in this facility.

    Thus, if one writes ‘All Indians are my brothers and sisters’ it translates correctly — which can easily be verified by going in for the reverse translation process. The same applies for ‘I love India’, which too translates correctly.

    But the moment one tries to link the word country to India the translation suddenly goes awry and India becomes Pakistan in the Urdu version.

    Looks like a paki is working in Google's Urdu translation department. He showed his pakiness.

    Google should know where it's future business will come from. It is prone to anti india gaffes. Be it maps or anything.

    Google translation is never accurate. I have said this numerous times, cut them some slack. Google is no god, they are allowed to have errors. And if Google is so bad, why don't anyone else try to develop & commercialize better services than them?
