Writing Exercise:
Lexical translation

Take a poem in a foreign language that you can pronounce but not necessarily understand and translate it word for word with the help of a bilingual dictionary. (Rewrite to suit?)

Alternately, take a poem in your own language, translate it into another language, then translate it back. Rinse. Repeat.

  • 1. Enter text in the first field "Original text".
  • 2. Check "audo detect" or choose the original language and choose the language to translate to.
  • 3. Click "Translate".
  • 4. Your translation will appear in the second field.
  • 5. Take the translation and put it in the "Original text" field and translate it into another language.
  • 6. Repeat this with a few languages.
  • 7. Finally, translate the text back into your language.
