On SRoMG, a common trend is to put the text of a comic through Google Translate, and then edit the mangled text back into the comic. As machine translation has become more advanced, the scripts barely change anymore. Compare 2011's Badly Translated Garfield to 2021's Googlefield Part 1.

So, if we don't use Garfield and don't use Google Translate (I opted for Yandex, and used its in-beta languages), this happens. Maybe it's better, maybe it's worse. Who's to say?
