Sometimes I come across certain foreign language phrases I'd like to see translated. Here is a handy site to do this: http://www.tranexp.com:2000/Translate/result.shtml Occasionally, one hears that "something is lost in translation." There is a nice way to see that here.
For example, supposed one types in English: "I love you."
The translator will return in German: "ICH Liebe Sie."
But then, type the "ICH Liebe Sie" and have it render again in English.
The translator will then return in English: "Self love she."
This would finally explain why my English (and slogan-matic German) didn't work too well for picking up German babes during my Cold War, European military duty tour days. Finally, I have some closure on that particular mystery...
