It might be valuable to have the translation engine translate the 
translation back into the original language. This is often standard 
practice so that you can check the quality of the translation. For 
example, I might ask the engine to translate a phrase from English to 
Czech and then back into English (sorry, my Czech is quite rusty, sorry 
for the errors!):
