Singing Disney’s Frozen in Japanese Using Google Translate
Now everyone knows Google Translate is pretty flawless. From science to technology to business to politics, there is no reason to use any other translating device (or person) to convey meaning. But what about songs? What if you took the songs from Frozen (アナと雪の女王), which is still currently breaking almost every Japanese movie box office record, and dub them into Japanese?
Wait, hasn’t that already officially been done by Disney with outstanding results?
Yeah… kind of. But one problem. They didn’t use Google Translate. Major amateur mistake (凡ミス!)
But not to fear. An amateur singer has taken it upon himself to redo and sing the soundtrack, with the proper Google Translated dubs. He inputted the lyrics in directly, and the fantastic Japanese results poured out.
I promise you that you will be singing to yourself “それは行ってみよう、それを手放す” or “愛は開いたドアです” or even “あなたは雪だるまを構築したいのですか!”
The movie might have even broken more Japanese records if they went the proper route like this…

Omg, this is brilliant!!! lmfao
I’m cracking up so hard at this: “あなたは雪だるまを構築したいのですか!”
Thanks for sharing!
Right?! It’s so stupid but so smart at the same time. And even the ridiculously awkward Japanese gets stuck in your head.
Of course, I HAVE to post this:
Malinda is a fantastic singer, and she has done many AWESOME google translate sings vids. Check out the “Wicked” vids…..
Now back to our regularly scheduled Japanese Immersion……
Google translate is the wave of the future!
Hey Adshap, waiting for your rendition of the Google Translated Japanese to English version. :-)
Haha, I’ll get right on that.
Haha :D awesome… Even though my Japanese is not yet at a level where I appreciate the fantastic Japanese created by Google Translate, it is quite funny anyway… Helps a lot that he actually does the singing part very well. I love the Frozen songs so I’ll definitely get back to these once I level up some more :D
You definitely have something to look forward to!
And since you are a fan, I hope you are using the real Japanese dubbed Frozen songs for some studying.
