Wanna see a good reason to not always translate things literally? Take a chunk of text and put it through this baby.

http://www.tashian.com/multibabel/

It uses Systran to translate your text to another language and back, repeatedy, then shows you the result. Include Asian languages to really screw things up. XD

There's some great examples on the page, and I'm sure we'll get some funny ones too. Observe:

Before said:
Earth's Special Forces is the greatest Half-Life mod ever.
After said:
The special forces of the track never are the greatest model of the
radioactive period of the partition in two.
Word of the necessity more? Er... need I say more?

Men give whatever they have for sex. Women give sex for whatever they want.
After said:
The personnel gives some in them is because of the identity by any
thing. As for it gives some to you as for the woman for them so that
the identity thinks we want, by any thing.

Man, oh man. This really does contort the original message. After passing things back and forth for a while, I went from:

Original Text said:
I am the very model of a modern major-general, I've information vegetable, animal, and mineral.
to

Final Version said:
The program of the general subsidy of the conductor today has the vehicle of the design of the information, the I, animal one in the
morning, with the mineral.
...creepy.

I am the greatest moderator on the forums.
The high controls of the system to ignite the program are tribune to
the morning that.
I think it's saying I'm going to use the admin control panel to start the roof of the forums on fire in the morning. If that is true, I better make up a decent alibi ahead of time.
