Google Translator for Animals

Google Translator for Animals
We know that Google has been working on some sophisticated speech translation software, but why limit yourself to only humans? The geniuses over at Google in the UK have developed a new app that can translate to English from a myriad of animals, including cat, dog, bird, rabbit, guinea pig, hamster, tortoise, horse, chicken, sheep, donkey, and pig. To develop Animal Translator, Google worked closely with many of the world's top language synthesis teams, and with leaders in the field of animal cognitive linguistics, including senior fellows at the Bodleian Library in Oxford. Simply install the Animal Translator from the Android Market, select from the list which animal is to be used, and click on the mic icon. We were astonished at the high accuracy rate, as we tried it with an outside bird, which said "Who are you? Do you have food?" Give it a try on your Android phone, as it's free to use and is a lot of fun. By the way...April Fools!
