Google Translate Poetry: Imagine

*Note: I think the beauty of this one is that the message remained clear even after moving through 5 languages, proving John Lennon a true genius and his song a wonderful universal message.

 

Original:

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Method:

English – Filipino – Ukrainian – Macedonian – French – Arabic – French – Macedonian – Ukrainian – Filipino – English

Result:

Think of the sky

It’s easy if you try

There is no hell under us

Just above us is paradise

Think of all the people living today

Think of a nation

Not hard to do

Do not kill or die

No religion

Imagine all those who live in peace, you

You can say that I dream

But I’m not alone

I hope you join us once

The world will be just one
