    Here is a nice little website which takes a statement through all the languages and puts it back to English.

    Example:

    Original English Text:
    I'm a little tea pot, short and stout.

    Translated to French:
    I' ; m un peu de pot, short et bière de malt de thé.

    Translated back to English:
    I' m a little pot, shorts and beer of malt of tea.

    Translated to German:
    I' m ein kleiner Topf, Kurzschlüsse und Bier des Malzes des Tees.

    Translated back to English:
    I' m a small pot, short-circuits and a beer of the malt of the tea.

    Translated to Italian:
    I' m. un piccolo vaso, cortocircuiti e una birra del malto del tè.

    Translated back to English:
    I' m. a small vase, short circuits and a beer of the malto of the tea.

    Translated to Portuguese:
    I' m. um vaso pequeno, short - circuitos e uma cerveja do malto do chá.

    Translated back to English:
    I' m. a small vase, shorts - circuits and a beer of malto of the tea.

    Translated to Spanish:
