As you know we have written about Google and the mistranslations for the Google.is. Not only have they fixed that but also are getting much better at Icelandic than expected, very much so that we can see strong indications of Google starting to understand Icelandic and it’s grammar. We will be looking at this further, doing some tests and reporting back later with our findings. Kudos to the multilingual team at Google for showing our old Viking language the respect it deserves, we at Optimize Your Web forgive you the “Freysta gæfunar” and “leita á vefur” misspellings.
