Instant Translation: Babel Fish

The website "Babel Fish Translation" will instantly translate a block of text or an entire website from English into a dozen different languages including Russian and Chinese (see above), Korean, French, German, Portugese, Italian, Dutch, etc., and vice-versa.

The name of the website Babel Fish comes from a fictional species of fish in the book "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" that can instantly translate any language to any other language.

No, BabelFish pretends to translate.
If it could really translate, a round-trip would come back to the original block of text -- or something resembling it more than this:
"TO RAISE at of of gas prices whole new central covering given, I thought government of orders station that most people around HIGH gas prices were ensured. Well apparent not the condition of Wisconsin, which around LOW gas prices one ensures. A repair workshop in Wisconsin was ordered by the condition, in order TO RAISE its prices, sees history here. According to the government each possible price can be invalid. Too low, he is predatory price calculation; too strongly, is it price from chisels (or scalping the map); also near at the price of its rivals, its Kollusion or the application of fixed prices."
