Lost In Translation

by Ganga White

"The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak" is often quoted from the bible.

Some language researchers wanted to test their translation programs so they entered the quote successively into a series of computers. They went from English, to French, to German, Italian, Portuguese, and then back to English.

The final result was, "The liquor is good, but the meat is raw."

All translation involves interpretation. Remember that when you read ancient texts and gospels.
