Mumbai, February 16: Google Translate was showing the wrong translation of ‘God Bless You’ into Hindi on Sunday. The translation for the phrase ‘God Bless You’ on Google Translate, showed ‘अस्सलामु अलैकुम’ (Assalam Alaikum) instead of the correct translation ‘भगवान आपका भला करें’ (Bhagwan Apka Bhala Kare). The error was pointed out by Twitterati, and Google immediately fixed it.
People started reacting on Twitter after they noticed the wrong translation and immediately pointed it out to Google.
Twitterati pointed out the wrong translation:
Google ke hindi translation me God bless you type karne se assalum walekum bata raha hai..Shadyanta har jagah ho raha hai.
