Translation of Foreign Platforms

I'm not sure if most users do this (except for the German and Polish users), but I always disable the foreign platforms. I have been reading that they offer some very good links and have been thinking about how to use them better. 

I can take a paragraph of text and place it in a translator and then use that, but it is then the same text used on multiple engines and leaves a very clear duplicate content text. I can't use spintax in a foreign language as I don't know what type of output it gives!

The feature that would be useful, is for it to take the English spintax and then generate a paragraph and then run this paragraph through the translator (google, babelfish, etc) and then use the output to post to these foreign sites. OR for those with a different language, it could take the foreign input and then translate to English and use that. (I think most users have a good understanding of English so this second option might be unnecessary.)

This would mean many more users would make use of these engines. 

I also do not know if this is easily doable or possible at all. Just an idea. 

What are your thoughts?

    you can use the #trans macro and it should be done automatically.

    Can someone explain this a little more? I don't really know how to do that! :-) And I've read the macro pdf!

    copy the content of your english stuff to the german fields...and enter #trans at the beginning and #notrans at the end of the text. done.
