Lost in Translation: Last Book Read #1

We all know how bad Google Translate can be at it’s job so I thought…

How bad can Google mess up book titles?

So I created this weekly segment where I translate books into 3 different languages then back to English to see the difference!

How does it…

  1. Pick the last book you read.
  2. Put that book in Google Translate and translate it into 3 different languages, then back to English. (Please put which languages you used to translate them!)
  3. See how close (or how far) it is to the original book title.
  4. Lastly, put the original book title at the bottom and talk about your last read!

I hope it’s not too confusing

Translated Title

Pumpkin

Languages

  • Arabic
  • Romanian
  • Macedonia

This probably won’t be a hard one to guess because…hint…it’s not far off and it gives fall cozy vibes!

The original title is…

Here it is…

Pumpkinheads by Faith Erin Hicks

This was the last book I read and…. the only book I’ve managed to complete in October. The reading game has been tough this month but this is a cozy graphic novel I like to read around fall time! This is the only book I tailor to the seasons (the rest of the time I just read whatever floats my boat)!

This meme is open to all to do but if you do, please tag me as the host/creator!

To keep the pages turning, I tag…

Were you able to guess the book? I hope so!

Have a good day or night and…
