Google Translate Adventures

Last night I was linking a page on Ynet to a friend in Hungary about the concert I'm going to tomorrow night. Just curious about what he will get out of it, I let Chrome translate the page to Hungarian. Now that proved to be a source of awesome fun! Seriously, what was I thinking? And hat was Google thinking when they decided to translate YNET as BBC? To make it even less understandable... ynet is written in latin characters as opposed to Hebrew. You can see the translation and the original text below. Sorry for cutting Harel Skaat's cute face out of the screenshot...

Anyway, if anyone wants to follow the concert tomorrow they can do it here. It starts at 10 p.m. Tel Aviv time, 9 p.m. Budapest time (CET), 8 p.m. UK time. Or if you visit the link, the countdown is on and you can listen to some songs from Harel's most recent album. At least it's not Milim.
