google trance-laid he-brew

It's always fun to see automatic translation, but watching google trying to translate Hebrew is twice as fun: modern-day residents of the holy land don't use diacritics (= no vowel signs), the language does not have capital letters or much punctuation, and on top of that, Israeli names — both first and family ones — are very often just common words. Now you can imagine the level of ambiguity linguistic tools have to deal with here. And I have not even mentioned the abundance of foreign words which sometimes make writing hard to comprehend by even a native human reader.
