Automatic Translation for Romanian

May 16, 2008

Google recently added support for Romanian to Google Translate. As you can imagine, it doesn’t really work for anything but short stereotypical phrases. So I wouldn’t really use it for learning pick up lines, even less for translating a blog 😉

The good news: you can always suggest a better translation.

And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

Boltzmann knew what it was to be in the grip of a beautiful and powerful idea. He once wrote that “What the poet laments holds for the mathematician. That he writes his works with the blood of his heart.” So we know that he was a passionate man.
