Funny Ways to Break Google Translate Voices

How to make Google Translate say funny things

The voice feature in Google Translate is mainly there to help us learn pronunciations. But sometimes, if you type things a certain way, like long pauses, weird noises, or funny accents, it starts sounding really funny. It’s great for a small laugh if you want to surprise your friends.

Making Google Translate have a stroke

The phrase “having a stroke” here means making the voice sound all mixed up or weird. Here are some fun ways to do that:

  1. When you stretch out vowels like “Aaaaaa” or “Eeeeeeee“, the voice draws out the sounds longer and weirder. Try mixing letters like “aaaaaeeeeeaaaaaeeeee” for even funnier effects.
  2. Try using different languages. I like using Albanian. When you mix it with “aaaaaeeeeeaaaaaeeeee“, it sounds like the voice is really struggling.How to make Google Translate have a stroke
  3. Adding extra spaces in words, like “H e l l o,” makes the voice stutter or pause between each letter.
  4. If you use really big numbers, the voice gets all confused, trying to say it fast or slowing down weirdly.

Funny Google Translate beatboxing

Did you know Google Translate can try beatboxing? If you type in certain strings that donโ€™t really mean anything, it starts making beat-like sounds.

  1. For a cool beat, use phonetic strings that play with the sounds of different languages. It’s funny to hear the voice attempt to say things like pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch.
  2. Changing up the languages and using silly strings can create all sorts of funny beats.

Making Google Translate laugh

Google Translate can even sound like it’s laughing. Check this out:

  1. Typing a bunch of “hahahahahaha” makes it sound like it’s laughing. The more you type, the crazier the laughter sounds.
  2. Switching the laugh string to another language and back can change how the laughter sounds.
  3. Adding words or phrases with laughter, like “hahaha what hahaha,” might give you some funny surprise laughs.

Confounding consonants

Stuffing a sentence with the same consonant over and over can create some hilarious sounds. For example:

  1. Try a sentence full of Bs, such as “Bobby's baby bounces blue basketballs behind big brown buildings.”
  2. Or try the Ts, like “Tim's tiny tiger tiptoed through the tall tulips to tell tales.”
  3. Don’t forget the Ss – “Susie's six slithering snakes silently sought some sun.”

Nonsense Google Translate Gibberish

Emoji explosion

Putting a bunch of emojis into Google Translate can turn out some unexpected pronunciations, as it tries to describe each emoji.

Example: ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿฑ๐ŸŽ‰ might be pronounced as “Face with tears of joy, cat, tada!”

Nonsense sentences to generate gibberish in Google Translate

Google Translate can get pretty confused by sentences that don’t make sense, leading to some funny gibberish.


  • Try: “Why is the purple chicken eating spaghetti in space?”
  • Switch it up by translating it to a rare language and then back to English.
  • What you get back might make you laugh!

Language looping

Translating a sentence through several languages and back can make it sound totally wacky. It’s like the telephone game, but with Google Translate.

  • Try translating a simple English sentence through a few different languages and see what you end up with. It’s usually pretty funny!

One last thing

It’s good to have some fun with Google Translate, but always use it with respect and donโ€™t do anything mean or misleading with it. These tricks are all about having a good laugh and not about poking fun at Google Translate’s voice feature or any language.
