I google translated "Big Fucking Gun 9000" into every language and made the according acronym. This is what happened.

I'm gonna pitch in with a more loosely translated one: AGPC9000 (Arma Grande para Caralho).

Now that's a proper localization. Good job.

That would be the literal translation, but in Spanish it doesn't sound quite right.

Fair enough, I only have book-knowledge of Spanish, so my knowledge of cussing and swearing is very small.

It wasn't the right choice to directly translate, "Acronyms". Languages descend from different roots, making letters almost untranslatable. For example, Deutch and English have a lot of letters in common because they are both descending from a Germanic language or languages. On the other hand, if you take Arabic for instance and tried to translate the letters in the acronym, "B" translated to, "ب" has nothing to do with the word, "Big" because it translates to "كبير". The Arabic word for, "Big" starts with the letter, "ك" and it is written, "كبير". As an advice @Telemassacre, translate each word inside any acronym to the wanted language and take each first letter of the words translated in their wanted language form to make your perfect, "Acronym". Not to mention that its silly translating, "F" for, "F*c*ing" in Arabic because the whole acronym, "BFG" doesn't make any sense in Arabic other than an actual sexual reference. So I would think twice before pulling my, "BFG" on that demon *getting flash backs from some sort of an anime doom .wad*

Let's say there was an Arabic, "John Khalid Romero" and, "AR Software" trying to make a video game called, "Desert Doom". In a linguistical approach, my closest imagination to the last and most powerful weapon could be, "TBG" as, "THE BIG GUN". As in, "آل س آل ك" and it does look intimidating like a nuclear warhead acronym.

Now Google, if they keep programming their translator to translate letters, it won't last for long because I deem it to be BLASPHAMY!

Arabic - بكم-9000


What google did in the Arabic/English translation is giving you the phonetic/phonemic relativity to the first letter entered. The rest are irrelevant. Not an actual translation to an, "Acronym". Also, Arabic, "Acronyms" has to have spaces between each letter because the moment some of those letters connect, its not an acronym anymore(بكم؟ means How much?). Nevertheless, rare instances of translating acronyms can be possible, but only occur with languages descending from the same/close origins.
 

Edited by Oday : tag, what google did in the English/Arabic, further explanation, reply

same stuff with japanese instead of translating it google just converted it to katakana so it would still be read as big fucking gun and technically still in "english" (yeah Japanese is weird its technically not incorrect but its also not a translation either)

In Portuguese and Spanish, the word Puta can also be used as a aumentative, for example, "We've got a big problem" can be translated from Portuguese as the expelative "Nós temos um puta problemão".
