Humans are weird 4
On most alien planets there is one constant language with some variations on slang. So when humans come around and see that Aliens have translators that translate everything to your language well they sold out with in hours on Earth, the Aliens took it a sign as them wanting to connect with everyone in space.
That is until Hsiang was on ship with a pair of humans talking and he noticed his translator glitching when he tried to listen to there conversation almost like if they were switching languages but every planet had their one standard language right? At the moment he thought nothing of it until again he was visiting earth and was with a group of humans from all different parts of the planet and his translator was acting as if they were switching languages, it was getting annoying. Maybe his translator wasn’t used to the human language.
Hsiang was officially over it when hearing two of his crew mates talking back and forth his translator was glitching constantly, he decided to ask“why is it that when I’m around you my translator glitches? Do humans have some sort of connection to electricity or what?“
“What do you mean?” They asked looking at him weirdly
“Well every time I’m around humans my Translator Glitches like if you were switching languages or something and it was Going hay wire around you two”
Hsiang just stared "What.”They proceeded to explain that there are many different languages that the people of earth speak. That there was of 100 languages and dialects and that some languages die out. Then everything kinda clicked why humans always had they’re translators on even when speaking to each other, why they looked at each other weirdly when one said an odd saying, why on earth there was always a big market of translators on earth even though most of the inhabitants didn’t venture out yet. One thing didn’t make sense yet
“Why is it when you speak in mid sentence my translator glitches ?”
“Oh that’s because we switch language mid sentence”
“Yeah it’s common on earth most people speak 2 or more languages since we didn’t have these nifty translators, although now people might not have a reason to learn another language, it’s actually kinda sad”
