New Google Translate Features

February 15, 2011 — 6 Comments

Listening and watching… and trying to keep up with Asian entertainment means that I use Google Translate often. This is why I think these are new features. I knew Google Translate could read out loud English… and German, but this is the first time that I’m aware it can read Japanese, Mandarin and Korean too.

Of course I chose BiBi’s Just to Meet You song to test, because that’s one of the songs that I butcher whenever it plays on my iPod. And it not only “translates,” but now you can also read it phonetically…

and you can listen to it read it out loud. O_O

Three very important things about this:

1. This is amazing… if you’re starting out a language.

2. A lot of sites that dedicate themselves to pinyin, romaji and Korean romanization just got their work cut down… or have some serious competition. With this, anyone can post lyrics…

3. This just made a whole new generation of lazy.

Bibi Chow – WOW

October 5, 2008 — 3 Comments

So I was looking around the web for lyrics of WOW, the 2nd part of the 2-disc album by Bibi Chow, because I was listening to it last night, and on my search for it I ended up finding my own posts wondering about Bibi’s music. How lame is that? So I’ve decided to put that finding to good use and work on the lyrics of the album~ and if people seem to be interested in it, I might work on NOW (the 1st part of the 2-disc album) and her other lyrics…

Okay, so because I don’t speak or understand Chinese, please don’t ask for a translation… it takes enough time (20min if it’s easy) to figure out the right pinyin. Also, no automated-web translation postings… if you think of posting a translation in the comments, I hope it’s a translation job done by a person, otherwise it won’t get approved.

If you are posting the lyrics, please proper credit is appreciated, as well as a link back.

And if you’ve got corrections, please point them out… some of the songs are too fast for my ear… Here’s the link to the CHINESE lyrics.
