Google and Altavista (bablefish) both provide machine translation tools,
they are pretty poor but they are better than nothing.
If you only know how to say "sorry, I dont speak English" then try your
best and try and explain as carefully and as clearly as possible in your
native language and then also provide a Machine translation we can often
take a reasonable geuss at it.
That way we can at least guess the gist (or general idea) of what you are
trying to say.

The English barely even speak English properly, most regions have their
own "interesting" interpretations of the English language. Sensible
English speakers (like us) will do our very best to understand your
English if you give us the chance because we may not speak your native
language (my Spanish is terrible, No hablo Espagnol!), and at the very
worst we will usually try and find someone who does speak your language in
the hope that they can provide an explantion we can work with.
