Translating and Bad Word Detector

Hello, Scratcher who is reading this message!

I am attempting to translate some of my projects into Portuguese because I have a follower who speaks it and I don't want them to have the bother of trying to translate English all the time. I'm using Google Translate. I already translated this project successfully, but in this one, the Bad Word Detector is telling me there's something wrong. I'm reading the translation, and I don't see any words that are bad in English. Does anyone who understands both English and Portuguese have an idea what could be setting the detector off?

Translating and Bad Word Detector

Google translate is nowhere near perfect, so it's probably just a mistranslated. Unfortunately, I don't know any Portuguese…
When I sent it back through the translator, everything seemed fine so I really don't know. (sometimes when you translate something from English and translate it back into English, it's original meaning has been visibly changed)

Hmmm, okay. I will run it back through translation and see how I can edit the English version. Thank you for your input!

Google translate has got me into some interesting situations when I translated to Spanish, so it's probably an error on their part.

Like, awkward moments or did you say something completely incorrect?

As everyone before me has said, it's probably a mistake on Google's part. But if you're absolutely sure that you translated it correctly, you can report issues with the bad word detector in this topic.

The world will never give up on you until you've given up on yourself.
