As we all know, when using an online translator to translate something to or from English, the results can be somewhat goofy. This got me to wondering: what if I took something that was in English, traslated it to another language, and then translated that result back to English? What would it yield? Well wonder no more, for I have done it. To start with, I'll give you the original source material, from the CNNSI site- 10 questions with Amanda Coetzer:<br />_________________________________<br />1. If not tennis, what would you be doing? <br />At this stage, I'd probably be studying. <br />2. What would you be studying? <br />I think catching up on some lost education.

3. What's your career highlight? <br />I wouldn't particularly say it's a specific win or a specific moment. I think you get to a point where you know you did something that you worked hard for, something that took you a while to grasp or understand and you succeed in doing that, it's an exhilarating feeling.

4. And speaking of the opposite of exhilarating, what do you do after a loss? <br />Well, usually you try to assess what happened, keep an open mind, move forward and plan for your next practice session, next match. A lot of times that doesn't really happen, a lot of times you know you dwell on the negative a little too long, I think.

5. What's missing from your career at this point? Is there something that you really want to do before you stop playing? <br />I think what's missing is being really at peace over a long period of time with what you're doing and having great confidence in what I'm doing. I think it would be a very nice feeling. I think I've had those moments but it really hasn't lasted as long as I've wanted.

6.You like to read. What's the last book you've read? <br />At the moment I'm re-reading a book called Works of Love by Kierkegaard.

7. How long have you been reading it? <br />I haven't read the whole book I started at one point then I had to leave the book somewhere and I found it again and picked it up and I'm starting all over again.

8. Who do you hate to see on the other side of the net? <br />Originally I was going to say somebody that's really a great competitor and that's really ready on a specific day. But I can't really say that because there's very challenging moments as well when you match up against an opponent who's ready and you're ready on that specific day and it normally ends up in a great match, but I think there are probably a couple of people that you don't want to see on their very best days, I'd say like Hingis and Davenport right now.

9. Grade yourself on where you are. <br />If I have to compare it to other years, I'd have to say it's way up there, but if I have to compare it to my ultimate year, probably dropped down a little bit, but I'd say compared to other years probably about a 7 or an 8.

10. Does size matter as far as being on the tennis court? <br />It does matter a lot, but it's definitely not everything. I think if you have a great game, there's an opportunity for all shapes and sizes.

First, I translated it into French, and then translated the French to English, and here's what Amanda had to say:<br />_________________________________<br />1. If not tennis, which would you make? <br />At this stage, I would probably study.

2. What would you study? <br />I think of clinging to the top with lost education.

3. Which is your climax of career? <br />I would not say in particular that it is a specific victory or a specific moment. I think you obtain at a point where you know that you did something that you worked hard for, something who took one moment with the catch to you or include/understand and you succeed in doing that, it is a perking up feeling.

4. And speech of the opposite to perk up, which do you make after a loss? <br />Well, usually you try to evaluate what occurred, keep an open mind, advance and project for your next session of practice, next match. Many periods which really does not occur, much periods you know each other angle of saturation on negative little too length, I think.

5. Which is lack your career in this moment? Is there something which you want to really do before you cease the play? <br />I think that what is missing is really with peace over a long period with what you make and having great confidence in what I make. I think that it would be a very nice feeling. I think that I had these moments but it really did not last as a long time as I wanted.

6.You likes to read. Which is the last book which you read? <br />At the moment when I read again a book called work of the love by Kierkegaard.

7. How long were you of the reading it? <br />I did not read the whole book which I began at a point then I had to leave the book some share and I still found it and took it and I start once again.

8. Who do you hate to see on the other side of the net? <br />Initially I was going to say somebody who is really a large competitor and which is really ready a specific day. But I then not really to say only because there is moments very provocants as well when you are matched upwards against an adversary which is ready and you are ready this specific day and it finishes normally upwards in a large match, but I think that there are probably couples of the people whom you do not want to see their better days, I would say like Hingis and Davenport in this moment.

9. Category yourself in function where you are. <br />If I must compare it with other years, I should say it is there, but if I must compare it with my final year, probably way to the top released to the bottom a little, but I would say compared with other years probably approximately of the 7 or the 8.

10 Does the size import until being on the court of tennis? <br />It imports much, but it is certainly not all. I think if you have a great play, it have there an occasion for all the forms and sizes.

Next I did Spanish:<br />___________________________________<br />1. If nontennis, what you would be doing? <br />In this stage, it would be probably studying.

2. What you would be studying? <br />I think to take for above in a certain lost education.

3. Which is its touch of light of the race? <br />It would not say certain that it is a specific or a little while specific triumph. I think you you obtain to an end where you know that you did something that you worked hardly for, something whom she took the grasping awhile to him or she understands and you are successful in doing that, he is a sensation that cheers.

4. And speech of the opposite to cheer, what you do after a loss? <br />Well, you try generally to evaluate what happened, keeps an opened mind, move ahead and glide for your following session of the practice, following emparejamiento. Many of times that really do not happen, many of times you little know halting him in the refusal a too long one, I think.

5. Which lack of its race to this point? There is something you really you wish to do before you stop playing? <br />I think that which lack is being really in concluído La Paz a period of the long time with which you are doing and having great confidence in which I am doing. I think that it would be a very pleasant sensation. I think that I have had those moments but it has really not lasted while I have wished.

6.You has taste to read. Which is the last book that you have read? <br />At the moment that I am rereading a called book the works of the lover by Kierkegaard.

7. Whichever time you have been reading he? <br />I have not read the whole book that I began in a then end I had to leave the book somewhere and I found it again and I took it and I am beginning all above again.

8. Who you hate to see in the other face of the network? <br />He was originally going to say to which is really a great competitor and who is really ready in a specific day. But not I can really to say that because there are very desafiadores moments also like when you correspond with for above against an opponent who is ready and you are ready in that specific day and finishes normally for above in a great emparejamiento, but I think that there is probably even of people to that you do not wish to see in your very better days, I I would say Hingis and Davenport now.

9, Degree you same ignition where you are. <br />If I must compare it to other years, it would have to say it I am way for above there, but if I must compare it to my last year, probably fallen down a little, but it would probably say compared to other years around 7 or 8.

10. The stature matters until being in the tennis court? <br />It concerns much, but she is not definitively everything. I think for if you have a great game, are an opportunity all the dimension of a variable and the statures.

LOL, Brian. Last year when I was following Cindy Blodgett on the ESBVA team, I got a lot of time with AltaVista translating the articles in La Voix du Nord. They came out pretty funny sometimes.

And finally, German:<br />____________________________________<br />1. If not tennis, which you would do?<br />At present I would probably study.

2. What would you study? <br />I think that interception above on somewhat lost formation.

3. What is your career high point? <br />I would not say particularly that it is a specific gain or a specific moment. I think you of one point arrive, in which you that you to something that you operated strongly for, something did, which you when to the range lasted or knows, understands and you follow, also, that, it to do, are a erheiterndes feeling.

4. And speaking the opposite one of the Erheiterns, which you do after a loss? <br />You well normally try to estimate which occurred, hold an opened understanding, move forward and plan the following agreement for your following practice session. A quantity of times, which really does not occur, a quantity of times knows you you stop on the negative a a little too long, thinks I.

5. What is missing from your career at this point? Is there something, which you to really do would like, before you stop to play? <br />I think that which is missing am really at the peace over a long time period also, which you do and having large confidence in, which I do. I think that it would be a very nice feeling. I think that I had those moments, but it did not really last so long, how I required.

6.You may read. What is the last book, which you read? <br />In the instant as I a book again-read, which is called operating the love by Kierkegaard.

7. Were you how long measured value it? <br />I somewhere did not leave the complete book read, which I began with one point, then I the book had and I regained it and fetched it and I begin all more rueber again.

8. Whom hate do you to see on the other page of the network? <br />I was in the term to say someone which is really a large competitor and which is really ready for use on a specific day. But I cannot really say that, because there are very difficult moments additionally, when you fit above against a competitor, that is ready for use and you, on this specific day are ready for use you and he terminates normally above in a large agreement, but I think that it would probably say pairs of the people, which would not like to see you as on their very best days I Hingis and Dave port at the moment gives.

9. Degree itself on, where you are. <br />If I must compare it with other years, I would have to say him am way there above, but, if I must compare her with my crucial year, probably down a little dropped, but I compared with other years probably approximately 7 or 8 to say.

10. Does size constitute up to its on the tennis court? <br />It constitutes much, but it is not definitely everything. For I think, if you have a large play, it an opportunity all forms and sizes give.
