This here takes your English phrase and translates it to Japanese, then back to English, and so on and so forth until it achieves "equilibrium."

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).

"Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country" became "How do I get the time?". That doesn't seem right.

I broke it. After 51 steps, it gave up: http://translationparty.com/#1455499

"Upon further reflection, the noise on top of the plane is in fact, a red monster full of hate and venom."

became this before it gave up:

"REBYUREDDOMONSUTA venom and hatred, and to stop the noise of the aircraft, it is actually."

Then a big red bar at the bottom of the page with "It is doubtful that this phrase will ever reach equilibrium." written.

What an addictive site - I'm having fun with it.

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?

There's still time for the Avian Flu to come in and screw that up. One good pandemic and we can delay hitting the 300 million mark for a good year or two maybe.
