Playing With Language(s)

I'm fascinated by on-line translation systems. I like to take a simple few lines of text and start translating them through the languages. It's a form of solitaire-telephone.

English to French:

Je suis fasciné par les systèmes de traduction en ligne. J'aime prendre à un simple peu de lignes de texte et commencer à les traduire par les langues. C'est une forme de solitaire-telephone.

French to Spanish:

Soy fascinado por los sistemas de traducción en línea. Me gusta tomar a un simple pocas líneas de texto y comenzar a traducirlos en las lenguas. Es una forma de solitaire-telep.

Spanish to Enlish:

Oh Mike, that is so perfect. We have to do that exact thing when translating our informed consent forms for sponsors for work. We have to get a translator to translate them to the other language, then back translate them to English to make sure the gist was got.
