I'm afraid this tool didn't manage any better than the one I'd been using. I tried translating
(I have no idea what that means, so my apologies if it's something that doesn't belong here) into English and I got
Krásná náladovka z Krkonoš ... možná trochu té prázdnoty vpravo ... i když možná i ta prázdnota je zajímavá ... vše je relativní
Krsnáá nladovkaá out of Krkonoš ... vantageá somewhat té przdnotyá to the right... albeit vantageá as well as the przdnotaá them take prisoneríá ... everything them relativityí
Grrr.... I don't know if that's because people are writing in some Czech form of internet shorthand or what, but I'm still in the dark. So if anybody finds a tool that can translate Slavic languages, please let me know.

Buy yourself a Slav, I hear they're quite cheap. My company uses several as programmers. The Russians are hard workers, but the Poles are friendlier.
Ha! Ha! I'm so funny.
I'm just kidding, in case anyone didn't get my not-so-funny joke.
We were given an assignment in one of my classes-- we had to go find a chatterbot, have a conversation with it, copy the conversation, and paste it into the Babelfish translator, translate it from English to another language, from that other language to a third, and then from that third language back to English.
Fabulous stuff. (Some of us found two chatterbots and got them to talk to each other for further surreality. If you pair up Eliza with Zippy the Pinhead, you get pure gold.)

And of course, about a year or two back, the bad translation of the introduction of some video game led to the "All Your Base Are Belong to Us" craze.
