Sorry! Bing Translates ‘Daesh’ as ‘Saudi Arabia,’ Infuriates the Kingdom

Bing Translator, an app contained within Microsoft’s Bing search engine, allows internet users to translate over 3 dozen languages. As with every translation app or website, by typing in a word or phrase in a chosen language the application renders it in another language.

Over the weekend, some users noticed a questionable result when the Arabic word for the Daesh terrorist group was entered into the program. Translated into English, “Daesh” became “Saudi Arabia.”
