    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.
