Earlier, GT translated Norwegian "postoppkrav" (English: charge on delivery) to Swedish "TORSK" (English: codfish). Note that Norwegian and Swedish are quite similar languages, with common grammar and a lot of common vocabulary - more like two distant dialects of the same base language - so translation ought to be quite simple and reliable.

Several similar mis-translations had made me suspect that the US and the English language it the center of the World, that every human and every language must relate to, always. So I tried out: Norwegian "postoppkrav" to English returned "C.O.D." (note uppercasing). English "C.O.D." to Swedish: "TORSK" (note uppercasing retained). Voila! (which translates from French to English as 'so' ...)

In the early days of machine translation services, there were quite a few of them out there. A common pastime, in particular among students, was to compete to find sentences in language 1, translated to language 2, 3, 4, ... and back to 1, returning the exact opposite of the original message content. There were web services to help you: You could set up the original message and the sequence of translators and target languages to run through, and the web service ran them one by one, as a script interpreter, and presented all the intermediate steps. If you mastered the intermediate languages, you might be able to spot where the meaning flipped over; that was a great help to generate new such sentences. I don't think any of those script services exist any more. The translation services have as well disappeared one by one, which is a pity. GT really could benefit from some competition!
