Lucia Google Latin Translation

Google now provides Latin as one of it's translation options. Cool.

Here's a comparison of translations provided by WDTPRS.  The last one is Fr Z.'s personal translation:

LATIN:
Omnipotens sempiterne Deus,
qui abundantia pietatis tuae
et merita supplicum excedis et vota,
effunde super nos misericordiam tuam,
ut dimittas quae conscientia metuit,
et adicias quod oratio non praesumit.

GOOGLE:
Almighty and everlasting God,
who in the abundance of Thy goodness
and exceed the proper and just punishment and vows,
pour it out upon us mercy,
‘so that the consciousness of forgive
what they fear him and will add to what we do not dare to ask.

WDTPRS SLAVISHLY LITERAL VERSION:
Almighty and everlasting God, who in the abundance of Your goodness
surpass both the merits and the prayerful vows of suppliants,
pour forth Your mercy upon us,
so that You set aside those things which our conscience fears,
and apply what our prayer dares not.

A wonderful thing Google translate may become but for now it is a pain.

If you are on a page of non English it may decide to render it in Английский and you end up with fractured an often incomprehensible babble.

It's definitely getting better tho and you can get the original back so its a step in the right direction
