    That is discrimination, Google.

    So Myst and I were wondering how come whenever we ran our UTAU stuff back and forth through Google Translate (English to Japanese to English), for some reason "potato" kept coming up.

    I figured it out.

    Google obtains "potato" from テト (Teto). Which is logical, since it kinda sounds like "potato". The bad part about this? We didn't mention Teto at all.

    After some more researching I figured it out:

    Google translates "UTAU" as "テト".

    That's discrimination.

    /EDIT: Even worse, "Vocaloid" is translated to "初音ミク".

    Oooh! That's why "UTAUs are potatoes" in that picture.
    I guess I'm slow.

    Err, well, they didn't traslate Microsoft as "Windows" so it's kinda a big mistake, yes.
    But well, this isn't the first time google went against this world. Does anybody remember the problem with Miku and google not showing any of the VOCALOID images if you searched for it?
