I conducted a little test of the Google translation software at translate.google.com. Basically I followed the example of an old parlor game. I began with a sentence in English and then had the software translate it into nine other languages before translating it back into English. Here are the results.

ENGLISH
The little red headed girl rode her tricycle across the bridge over the rapids.

SPANISH
La pequeña niña pelirroja montó su triciclo por el puente sobre los rápidos.

MONGOLIAN
Бага улаан толгойтой охин галт тэрэгний дэргэдэх гүүрийг дагуулан гурван дугуйтаа унадаг.

GREEK
Ένα νεαρό κόκκινο κεφάλι παίρνει ένα τρίκυκλο με ένα τρένο δίπλα στο τρένο.

HMONG
Ib lub taub hau me me liab coj lub thij peb lub tsheb ciav hlau nrog lub tsheb ciav hlau ntawm lub tsheb ciav hlau.

SWEDISH
Ett litet rött huvud ledde den tredje triangeln med tåget på tåget.

KOREAN
작은 빨간 머리가 열차의 열차와 함께 세 번째 삼각형을이 끕니다.

CZECH
Malá červená hlava vede ke třetímu trojúhelníku vlaku.

POLISH
Mała czerwona głowa prowadzi do trzeciego trójkąta pociągu.

Weird. I was just doing something similar last night with Japanese nonsense to English. I just typed in some random characters, and then copy and paste them repeatedly. You would think it would keep repeating the same translation, which it sometimes does to a point, but then it will spit out something comprehensible

Try these:
