WATCH: More Facebook Nazi Translation Problems

Facebook’s inability to translate the Hebrew for “The Nazis” gets even stranger.

Following on from Dave’s post about Facebook translating the Hebrew for “The Nazis” as “master race” a disbelieving Facebook friend tried to re-create this. Instead of master race, however, he got “Germany”.

The Nazis are Germany

So I tried a few other forms and got some bizarre results too:

all nazi facebook translations

Neither Google nor Bing have this problem:

google translate facebook nazis

bing translate facebook nazis

So I made the video at the top of the post to point this out.

Now we just have to wait and see if Facebook changes this or explains what is going on.

Update 20 March 2016: Israellycool’s Orit tried it out for herself. In her case “The Nazi”  translates to “My Mom”

Orit tries out Facebook Nazi translate gets My Mom
