Test Tasting Computer-Translated Recipes

ElaN Languages suspects that you've never used its computer-based translation software. You probably just use Google Translate.

To prove that you should use its product instead, ElaN Languages subjected its program and Google Translate to the test--a taste test.

It took a Japanese-language recipe for a sushi cake and ran it through both programs. Then it prepared the dish precisely according to the translated instructions, no matter how ridiculous those instructions were.

According to the advertisement that resulted from the experiment, Google Translate's recipe wants you to add sliced paper flyers, ground-up coins, and plastic horses. The taste testers at the end prefered ElaN's sushi cake.
