Google offers a BETA version of its language translation software. I had fun using it to translate translated versions of Joel on Software and comparing with the original English version. (French to English, German to English, Spanish to English)

I thought the results were rather good. This link gives the translation from the French version of The Joel Test back to English.

I'm very fond of item 12 'Do you make tests of usability of corridor?'. Yep every day, and it's proved very usable so far.
