Fury as Microsoft Bing translates the Arabic word ‘Daesh’ into English as ‘Saudi Arabia’


Look how fast the barbarians use the racism card! It’s a constant confrontation and misuse of any and every reference to human rights, which they have never followed or believed in through their 1,400 years of history. A completely unsuitable migrant to the West. Muslims must be blocked from any access to residency or passports into the West.

Fury as Microsoft Bing translates the Arabic word ‘Daesh’ into English as ‘SAUDI ARABIA’ 

  • Mischievous users suggested a change for the English translation of Daesh
  • Microsoft claimed more than a thousand people suggested Saudi Arabia 
  • The crowd sourcing elemt is designed to improve translation accuracy
  • Microsoft changed the translation after being alerted and apologised

 

A computer glitch caused international outrage as  Microsoft Bing’s translation service changed the Arabic word ‘Daesh’ into Saudi Arabia.

Daesh is a highly insulting name in Arabic for the so-called ISIS caliphate.

Mischievous users of the service used the crowd sourcing ‘suggest a better translation’ application to fool the computer into accepting the change.

Social media users expressed outrage over the translation mix-up on Microsoft Bing 

Some users called on Saudi Arabian computer users to boycott Microsoft products after their online translation service mistook the Arabic for Daesh as the official name for the kingdom

Microsoft apologised immediately to Saudi Arabia after learning about the mistake and changed the computer programme to remove the insulting translation 

Microsoft apologised immediately to Saudi Arabia after learning about the mistake and changed the computer programme to remove the insulting translation.

Dozens of users in Saudi Arabia expressed outrage when they typed in ‘Daesh’ and saw the official name of their country appear in the second box.

As soon as Microsoft officials were alerted to the problem they changed the translation.

A Microsoft spokesman told The Register: ‘Our product team fixed the error in the automated translation within hours of learning about it.’

Dr Mamdouh Najjar, Microsoft’s national technology officer in Saudi Arabia claimed that if more than 1,000 people suggested a translation, it would be listed as a possible answer.

However, the problem has been resolved.

    • Absolutely. In fact, Qatar and Saudi Arabia (in particular) hire University students throughout the West to troll under non-Muslim names, report content that is not to their liking, etc. That’s the way they get around reporting content in US, UK and European countries. We’ve caught a few of them on newsboards who eventually admitted they are hired.

      Muslims are masters on propaganda. Always have been. Just look what they’ve done to the Jews for 1400 years!

      • Probing our defenses in furtherance of theocratic takeover.

        Are Americans suckers for letting Islamic scouts roam our land identifying targets? Where is the Federal prosecution of the Muslim Brotherhood operatives conspiring to de-rail our secular Republic? Why are there more Muslim Student Associations on American campuses than there are Young Republican and Young Democrat organizations combined?

  1. The principles and policies of daesh are the same as those of the Saudis. It takes real arrogance for Saudis to call the West “racist” when Christians and Jews are not allowed to practice their religion in the Daesh/Saudi kingdom.
