All about plagiarism!
• Plagiarism • Plagiarism is the act of submitting someone else’s work as your own original, creative production. • If you use another person’s writing or original work, you must cite their words using an appropriate manuscript style in the Works Cited page, Endnotes, or in a Bibliography. • The exact wording should be in quotation marks or paraphrased in the paper and referenced as such in the paragraph in which it appears. • You may not copy and paste directly from the Internet without giving appropriate credit to the author. • Plagiarism is a serious academic violation. Plagiarism will result in no credit and will also be considered as a disciplinary issue and may result in removal from your school. • From “OHVA Handbook.”

Online Translator or Translation Site
• An online site that allows people to enter sentences in one language and have them translated to another language.

Should I use an Online Translator? Absolutely Not!!! Why?
• They do not work! Online translators are of poor quality. • Computers cannot decipher tone, mood, or context and will not correctly translate a sentence. • Computers have no brains; you do! You are smarter than the computer! • Many words have no direct translation in other languages and cannot be translated correctly by a computer. • Some words have multiple meanings; computers don’t understand context (mad = insane, angry, passionate, etc. • Only humans can be true translators! • It is cheating! • It is not at all allowed! • An automatic 0 will result. • Disciplinary action by school admin could result.

Online Translators and Proper Names
• In English, we have many proper names like: Mrs. White, Mr. Baker, Mrs. Crabapple, Mr. Hightower…. • An online translator would translate “White,” “Back,” “Brown,” and “High” and “ High Tower.” (not all names translate) • In English, Antonio Banderas’ name would translate to: Antonio Flags (Banderas= flags)

Online translators and Idioms
• An idiom is a phrase that does not translate literally Example: It’s raining cats and dogs. • Online translators cannot translate idioms. • Most idioms are not the same from language to language

Online translators and Slang
• Slang words or phrases do not translate literally Examples: I feel like I could croak. It was a blast. • Online translators cannot translate slang. • Most slang is not the same from language to language

How will your teacher know if you used an online translator?
• Online translators will use vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, etc. that you have never been taught. This is a red flag to your teacher! • You need to use what you have learned and show what you have learned in all your assignments! • It will sound very funny to your teacher because it will sound very mature, stilted, or even archaic (like Shakespeare). It will use language a teen is unlikely to use.

• Here is an online translation of the words to the classic childhood nursery rhyme “Ladybug, Ladybug” into an online translator site: “Marienkäfer Marienkäfer fliegt weg nach Hause, sind Sie Ihr Haus in Brand und Ihre Kinder weg, Alle bis auf einen und die kleine Anna, für sie unter der Pfanne eingeschlichen.“ • Apart from the incorrect capitalization and punctuation; apart from the errors in sentence structure, misuse of words, and incorrect grammar; apart from all that, here is what I read – translated back into English by me: “Ladybug Ladybug flies away toward home, are you your house on fire and your children away, all except one and the little Anna, for her under the pan creep in.”

Look at this Example of an Online Translation… and don’t laugh 

• Here’s the online translator’s English version of the wrong translation:
“Ladybird ladybird fly away home, you are your house on fire and your children away, all crept up on and little Anna, to them, taking the pan.” That's what it sounds like to me when you turn in something from an online translator. • Add to that the usual misspellings of the English word, which won’t get translated (think your instead of you’re; collage instead of college), and I’m sure you can see how it’s painfully obvious to me when such a tool is used.
