The Lorem Ipsum Conspiracy

 

As a linguistics geek, I have an unnatural love for the words ‘lorem ipsum’. So I was fascinated to read this account from security researchers who found that the phrase ‘translated’ through Google Translate to some key phrases that definitely didn’t exist in the original Latin:
A table showing the words 'lorem ipsum' and their 'translations' from different capitalisation. Translated words include 'China' 'Internet' and 'The company'.I’m not sure if I should read this as a clever modern-day spy story or a fascinating conspiracy theory, but it’s entertaining either way.
