My example phrase took 21 steps, getting from "Never before have so few done so much with so little" to "To perform in front of the lot is small." That seems like a lot of steps. Also I don't think we really captured the essence of that phrase by the time we were done. Maybe "Never before have so MANY done so much with so little" would be better? We ended up with "This is the most" after 13 steps - we got there faster, but I think we lost a bit more in translation (ah ha ha), so to speak (ahahaha I did it again, you can't stop me).

Check this out: http://translationparty.com/#1775525 - trying to translate DO OR DO NOT, THERE IS NO TRY, step three becomes "Otherwise, please do not exist". Wonder if this exists for other languages? "I have a feeling that waiting isn't as pointless as it seems. If someone is waiting, that place becomes a place to return to."
