Warning: JPEG artefacts incoming!

Dear Google,
you know exactly which languages I speak. So please explain to me why you still feel the need to push some random video titles and descriptions through Google Translate, making them look unprofessional and confusing me because I know that I watched that video already, but now it has a new title? And why is there no option to turn this off? And why do you explicitly state that the language setting does not affect text submitted by users? Even though it does? What the actual fuck?

Also lol even Google isn't perfect at using ecape characters correctly

    If I watch an English video, I obviously understand English. Those translated titles do nothing but confuse.

    What annoys me is that there's no way of turning it off. I've questioned my sanity a few times as a result of it.

    I don’t think that’s Google Translate. The author of the video sets it up for multiple languages so they can target more viewers. I agree that it shouldn’t necessarily show you the German version if you speak English, but that’s a matter of personal opinion.

    @620hun May actually be true, I could only find options to translate the title and description yourself, or let the community suggest translations.But in my opinion the translations are on Google Translate's level of quality more often than not.
