yay for not moving the verb to the end with the modal and addressing me politely and not capitalizing the noun and not using the accusative for the "in" preposition since it's motion! :P

Du musst in den Schnee spielen gehen.

I'm sure the folks at Google's translation department would be upset to hear that. (=

Some of those mistakes are pretty pathetic.

The only thing I can let slide is the formality thing --- all machine translators default to formal case. In fact, I've never seen one that lets you choose to be informal.

Go ahead... just try getting informal with one of those translators! Remember, they're under camera-supplemented guard 24/7. :-)

Das ist zwar nicht falsch, aber ich würde "Du mußt im Schnee spielen gehen" sagen :)
