Google Translate is getting better all the time, but it's still not perfect. Translate a sentence into another language and back into English, and you might get a hilarious surprise. That's what Malinda Kathleen Reese got when she reverse Google Translated the lyrics to "Let It Go" from Disney's Frozen into Chinese, Macedonian, French, Polish, Creole, Tamil and others. It doesn't come out as utter gibberish, but as a slightly off version with a slightly different message from the original. Which makes it even funnier. Plus, Malinda can really sing.
