When you do this swap, you will need to keep a copy of the song lyrics for the song you choose so that you can send that along with the lyrics after you translate them. So happy that I was messaged and asked about this!

It really wouldn't be as fun of a swap if we weren't to send the original lyrics so our partners can see how the lyrics changed after translating them twice into two different languages and then back to English again.

It is possible to translate them into two languages and back to English and have the exact same lyrics and if that happens to you, please do it over again and choose two more very different languages and see what you come up with, okay?

Okay, this is a swap that since our friend @tizzicat had to cancel, I asked and she graciously gave me permission to go ahead and host the swap.

Unfortunately all of the details are gone from the original swap so I'm going to just wing it and hope that I get it right or at least close to the original one she had written. 😀

This is an electronic swap and you'll have 3 partners to send to.

What we'll do is to choose a song that we really like and find the lyrics to it by doing a google search (or by using the search engine of your choice!) and then copy the song lyrics to your song you've chosen …

From there, you'll go to Google Translate (if you can't find it, do a search for that as well and a page will come up and on that page, paste the lyrics to the song you chose.) Then choose another language to translate the lyrics into.

After that, copy and paste those lyrics and then translate the lyrics again to another language. Then translate the lyrics back to English and the lyrics should have changed some (not all) but if you happen to hit the right languages, some of the lyrics can come out hysterically funny in their translations!

I hope you'll join because this swap is gonna be fun!

PLEASE NOTE: I reserve the right to ban anyone from the swap if they have unresolved 1's (especially recent ones!) and also newbies can join IF they haven't already signed up for a whole lot of swaps.

To wrap it all up: Copy your song lyrics first into English and then from English into another language and from that language to one other language and then from that language back to English again.

Feel free to get started on your swap as soon as you sign up, if you'd like to!

** NOTE: Rating your partners is an absolute must and please do in a reasonable time as it shouldn't be up to the person to have to chase down their partners to have to ask them to rate them. This responsibility comes with signing up for the swaps here at Swap-bot!

Are we going to include what it first looked like in English, before translating it into the other languages as well? Or just the final result?
