Google has done it again. It has come out with a second easter egg related to Star Wars, ahead of the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
— Google (@google) November 25, 2015
The Star Wars character C-3PO is, of course, known to be fluent in 6 million forms of communication. And if you click on the link in the tweet shown above, you’ll be taken to Google Translate, where the Star Wars saying “May the force be with you” is translated from English into Aurebesh, which is the written language used in the Star Wars movies.
You can type any word in any supported language into the text box in Google Translate and instantly see it depicted in Aurebesh. You can also hit the Swap Languages button and see keys on your keyboard shown in Aurebesh. Whatever you type can then be translated into English or any other language.
This easter egg comes just a couple of days after Google started showing something very cool — search results in the style of the opening crawl in the Star Wars movies — when you run a Google search for “a long time ago in a galaxy far far away.”
These Googley gimmicks will have to keep you entertained until December 18, when Star Wars: The Force Awakens makes its debut in theaters.
