    And, to twist the English language through 5-language translations and then back again, al la babelfish:
    http://www.tashian.com/multibabel/
    Example:
    "Original English Text:
    This is a section where pretty much any non-Glock related topics can be discussed. Having a separate section for these non-Glock questions will help take some of the strain off of the General Glocking forum."

    To French and then back:
    It is a section where pretty matters connected much all them by non-Glock can be discussed. To have a section separated for these questions from non-Glock will help to remove part of the constraint of the forum of the Glocking General.

    Then to German and back:
    It is a section, in which pretty affairs attached much everything, which, they can be discussed by non Glock. A section helps to have, for these questions from the non Glock is separated part the delimitation of the forum from the Glocking general to remove.

    Then after Italian and back:
    It is a section, in which fixed graceful transactions much all, than, it can be discussed do not give Glock. A section contributes to having, since these questions do not give the Glock are separate part the marking out of the tribune from the General di Glocking to remove.

    Portguese and back:
    It is a section, where the fixed gracious transactions very everything, of that, it can be argued does not give Glock. A section contributes to have, since that these questions do not give the Glock are separate part marking are of tribune of the Generality di Glocking to remove.

    Spanish and back:
    It is a section, where the fixed graceful transactions very everything, of that, he can be discussed do not give Glock. A section contributes to have, that these questions does not give since then the Glock is separated mark of the part is of tribune of the majority I gave Glocking to clear.

    www.engrish.com is great, I've been following that one for years.(I used to work in Japan). Just remember that the Japanese often switch the "r" and "l" sounds. Reminds me of the photo of the posters at Tokyo airport when when McArthur was gonna run for president after the occupation there, and the Japanese had made big banners saying "We pray for McArthur's erection!" :)
