Translating Blah Blah Blah on Facebook

If you type variations on “blah blah blah” in the comments section of a Facebook post, something very interesting happens. Unfortunately for you, you won’t be able to see all the fuss on your own comments. You’ll still see “blah blah blah.” Everyone else will be given the opportunity to translate your “blah blah blah” from Arabic into English with, at times, disturbing translations. 

Try it. Have a friend translate it, screenshot it, and post your translated comment as a reply.

The first mention I have found of this was 4 days ago on Reddit in the sub /r/funny.

About an hour ago, the Australian Yahoo! Lifestyle site took note.

The translation feature on Facebook is powered by Bing. It will be interesting to find out the cause.

I tried typing "blah blah blah" in the comments section of a Facebook post and experienced it translate into something weird. #blahblahblah #facebook #translation #bing #tmhahn Click To Tweet
