Sonic Boom
Translate This

"Translate This" is an episode in the Sonic Boom television series. It aired on 15 November 2014.


Tails builds a translation robot that inadvertently reveals the subtext of what everyone is saying. This leads to disagreements and fighting among Sonic and friends.[1]



The story begins with Sonic, Amy, Knuckles and Sticks having a nice, relaxing day on the beach near Sonic's house. Sonic and Amy are enjoying the sun and Knuckles and Sticks are playing volleyball. Just then, Tails arrives with his "most brilliant invention yet" which he shows is a robot he calls "U-T" (Universal Translator), capable of translating any language into their own. To demonstrate its capabilities to his friends, Tails activates U-T and it manages to translate the language of a bird in a nearby nest. Knuckles is impressed until U-T begins saying what Knuckles says as something completely different, and Tails reveals that even when U-T receives something that does not need to be translated, it will translate it into what the speaker really means, making it a form of mind reader. U-T then begins translating the subtext of the group's conversations, such as Amy's disinterest in U-T, Knuckles' low opinion about Sticks, and Sonic's notes about Knuckles dimwittedness, which causes tension among them. Sticks however, just dislikes it. Amy then convinces Tails to shut down U-T before it reveals anything too "sensitive" (just before it reveals from Amy's statement that she loves Sonic).
