25 languages, who does better?
Edit: of course it can be better: Despacito in 40 Different Languages!
And World Record – Australian Sings 145 Languages In 1 Song - Ăn Đu Đủ Is Not A Polyglot. Even Vlaams and Flemish but which 2 exactly of the many, many dialects?
Nice! I can’t do better than that.
But I think it’s funny these guys are actually Serbs.
The theatrical group Die Antwoord have actively been fighting racism is South Africa. They rap in a mixture of languages. Not for all tastes, but I especially like the intro:

In this place, you get a lot of different things:

Fucked into one person
Nach bhfuil sé Ceilteach ach amháin má tá sé Gaelach.

Might be a clustermess of misunderstandings, but it seems like a useful messenger app even just for text messages, so you can speak with anyone in the world.
Maybe on SAFE, ultimately. Using some neural-net that always improves itself based on some sort of user rating system.
Sad that things like Reddit channels seem to be separated into only be native English speakers, etc
While not fully automatic, Google has a plug-in that shows a pop-up once you select some text in a language it thinks is not one you speak. Google Translate is good enough that I could hold an in-depth conversation on Twitter about the Hong Kong situation with a high-school student from mainland China.
I don’t know where to start explaining just why it is so utterly hopeless. Dig a bit into NLP and you’ll see it for yourself.

This one is from Denmark.
The singer/songwriter happens to be my cousin. Not the actress, though.
