When A Dictionary Leaves Its Mark on You

This little gem was sent in by Amit, and is just too good to pass.

As the story goes, this girl wanted to write "I love XXX" (boyfriend's name) in Hebrew and tried to accomplish the task using Babylon translation software.

Well, if you read this site, you know where this is leading...

What does this Hebrew Tattoo read?
"Babylon is the world's leading dictionary and translation software"

Oh yeah, THAT bad.

Remember boys and girls, never use an automatic/online translator, and especially if you're translating a name. Sadly, this effort was doomed from the start.


  1. Maybe she's just a loyal employee of Babylon?

  2. Welcome back! I missed your posts. I hope you continue to keep posting!


  3. I hope this post is not just a Babylon publicity stunt but a new start for this great blog.

  4. I want the word temperance written in Hebrew as to date the true meaning . I want it to be correct as Hebrew is written right to left . If I were reading it in a tattoo how exactly should it look

    1. Temperance in hebrew can be either מתינות or איפוק. For a tatto I would go for the first option.

  5. Hey can you help me with a translation?
    I wnat to do a hebrew tattoo... so i think u can hel me to do this correct:
    "When the body cannot sustain the mind maintains"
