I don't think the google translator works very well anymore. What came out made less sense to me than what went in. Although, that was partially due to the fact that a few Latin (?) words were left untranslated mixed in with the English translation. I have never seriously studied Latin, but have picked up a bit over the years. I could not even begin to pretend to be in any stretch fluent in Latin. But the google translator pretty much was no better than I could do myself. Sad. (Which according to google is the same for both Latin and English) (Could be?)

Or this....

It's a very old joke played on younger Latin students by older students or by
teachers who thought that sort of thing would pique their interest. It's
usually written in metrical form:

O, Sybilli, si ergo!
Fortibus es in aero!
O, nobili, demis trux!
Vadis enim? Causet dux!

Oh, see, Billy! See her go!
40 buses in a row!
Oh no, Billy, them is trucks!
What is in 'em? Cows & ducks!


(was on the internet, so it must be true... :-) )
