'[OT]: Anyone speak spanish?'

This person wrote me the message you see below, which looks as though it's
been trashed by babelfish - a few more beers and it might make sense, but
it's getting late here :)

Is there anyone that would like to help and could converse with her in
Spanish?

Thanks,

JB

Wow, I guess it *IS* getting late in the school year, isn't it?  8-)

LOL! Babelfish can be entertaining sometimes, even if you let it translate the sites that are recommended as "sites that BabelFish translates well".

Take, for example, the following passages, translated by BabelFish from the site of the Spanish newspaper El Pais : http://www.elpais.es

The European Commission proposes before the European Parliament a new plan of emergency to palliate the adverse effects of badly of the crazy cows in the market of the bovine one.

The Permanent Veterinary Committee, that represents the 15 countries of the UE, ratifies the prohibition of chuletón of greater cow of a year. From the 1 of April, most of the countries of the Union it will have to reject the spine of these head of cattle. Even so, it will be possible to be continued consuming the bull tail, since until that zone the dorsal ganglia do not arrive, that are those that can be contaminated with the prión of the bovine espongiforme encefalopatía.

The sensation is had from the periphery of which Madrid goes away of Spain. That another league, the world-wide league of cities plays. A species of Figo syndrome, very accused, how no, in Barcelona (How we let escape to this type: that is another one).

A dictionary gathers 800 concepts nails of the work of Lezama Lima

Jose Lezama Lima (Havana, 1910-1976) he knows himself him or he mentions himself to him almost exclusively being the author of Paradiso , the novel that wrote in 1966.

Yes, I'd say that purely machine translation has a ways to go :-)

Now, if I could just figure out this line:

"but these reles should be activated one at the same cheats"

the rest would make sense. reles=relays, but what's a "cheat"?
[besides someone who downloads using Napster].

[and glad someone else recognized the relationship with the
school year :)].
