My strategy for translating text is to use Google Translate or deepl.com and then translate it back into English, and tweak until the output is constant, and I now realise I'm using a fixed-point combinator over human language translators

@mala I'm finding Yandex more accurate for Arabic and Italian. Weird eh?

@vik wow they translate into latin and sindarin!

@mala Yeah. Only just started using it recently. I think it's the default translation service for Fedilab. Other than not always having a romanised alphabet phonetic option it's pretty good.

@mala
Pretty soon the model will catch on and your translations will become something akin to "As they say in English, '{original_message}'"
