"Jantungku, hatiku"

We have received a new file from an aid agency in the region and we are very intrigued to see how other language meanings are altered when translated verbatim into English. 

For example: 
"Jantungku, hatiku" (Malay) in this particular document if translated into English should read as "My life, my love" but we note the machine translation which lists the meaning verbatim as "My Heart, my liver." 

That is sure to bring a smile to anyone's face. 

Have a good evening!
