5 Geeky but Official Google Language InterfacesAdvertisements:
This is an old one but for those who don’t know, Google offers funny n’ geeky language interfaces just for the sake of enjoyment. According to Google; Bork, Elmer, Hacker, klingon and Pirate are languages interfaces that you can use and set as homepage. You can consider them as Easter eggs or funky terminology because they do not solve any purpose rather used only to amuse you.
Bork, bork, bork ! – The Muppets Language
Bork, bork, bork! is the language of Swedish Chef from the Muppet Show. [source]
The page says, “Google-a Seerch” and “Ee’m Feeleeng Loocky” for the standard buttons. If you try to search something that does not exist, it says:
Yuoor seerch – deed nut metch uny ducooments. Um gesh dee bork, bork!
• Meke-a soore-a ell vurds ere-a spelled currectly. Bork bork bork!

Damn funny, isn’t it?

Klingon – For Star Trek Fans
Klingon is language of fictional klingons race in the popular TV series Star Trek.[source] It’s very cool of Google to create such dedicated page for ST fans. The Google search is GoogleDaq ylnej and I’m feeling lucky is jlSuDrup. Gosh, how did they come to this tranlation?
Pirate – Aye Mate, Lets have a Ruckas
Do you love the pirate language? Google loves it too. That is why there is an option for Pirate speech in its language selection tool. If something couldn’t be found in search, it says:
Yer treasure map – didn’t lead t’ any loot.
Google home page is no Google Home Port and About Google is Who be this Google.
Bonus: The Pig Latin Hidden Language
Though there is no official announcement on Pig Latin and even language tool does not display it but there is a hidden page built for Pig Latin fans. The language is framed by altering the alphabets of English words.
