Facebook Wants to Translate Laughter

Ladies and gentlemen, this is why machine translation isn’t going to replace human translators in a hurry:

FB Translate Heh Heh Heh

Apparently Heh heh heh was too much for the Facebook language algorithm. No, thanks, I don’t need it translated. Granted, I use FB with three languages (Finnish, English, Swedish) with any regularity. All of my settings are in English, however.

And the real irony? The above screenshot comes from an English-language conversation.

Some things are just too silly not to share!
