They should test it on Finnish.

Every computer-based translator gets Finnish terribly, terribly wrong.

German as well. They never can get the syntax right. German into straight english comes out sounding like yoda
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 7259927


Autotranslated Finnish always comes out wrong in almost every way - syntactically, grammatically and contextually. It's because we don't do prepositions and pronouns are always gender neutral (sometimes you can't deduce the gender even from the context). Futhermore, nouns are declined in a complex way.

Finnish language has defeated all computer-based translation systems so far.

They figured out a long time ago that its much easier to control people when we're all watching the same TV shows, listening to the same radio stations, going to the same movies, looking at the same billboards, eating the same food, and speaking the same language...

A company named Voxonic in developed a translator to for actual sound over a decade ago. The first project was to translate all the JayZ albums into different languages. Then it disappeared.

Bluetooth headset translates foreign languages in real-time

"As one person speaks, their sentence is sent through the headset to the smartphone.
It is then translated into the desired language and spoken into the earpiece worn by the second person."

Chalk up another Star Trek device that has come to be reality.
