Bing swear-generator

A friend of Simon Davis’s commented on a Facebook post of his in Greek.

Ουφ, με τρόμαξες

Bing offered to translate and for once I accepted the offer.

Ouf, with tromaxes.

That’s my new favorite swear. Do admit.



  1. says

    Hm. No, I don’t admit. (I tried googling tromax, and found it is a drug available in Ethiopia.)

    My favourite was, and still is, perkele. I like the sound of it when vigorously pronounced, spittle flying and all.

    Damn. “Ouf” is onomatopoeic so I’ll let that slide, but “tromaxes” is unacceptable.
    I’m revoking Bing’s license to Greek.

  3. Latverian Diplomat says

    Pardon me for not playing along with the joke, but google translate says it’s

    Whew, you scared me

  4. says

    Yes I know. Simon told me, and anyway it’s easy to use Google translate. I’m not entirely sure what the point of not playing along with the joke is.

    Bing hasn’t translated, it’s just transliterated the Greek letters into their English equivalents. Should be an excellent resource for unintentionally humorous translations, although perhaps not quite on par with English As She Is Spoke.
