This translation from Italian to English without a dictionary is not nearly as much fun as one might assume.  Ten sentences, 90 minutes....argh.

Whip me, said the masochist. No, said the sadist.

Nah, but we're going to Italy along with France next year, and I want to get basic competency. But its been REALLY hard to find an Italian dictionary to put on my PC. Downloadable ones have been crap -- well, perhaps not exactly, but they don't have voice, they don't bounce easiy between languages...the only good thing that the Ultralingua one did was to offer conjugations. And THAT, they did awkwardly. I would LOVE an online version of the French/English Verb2Verbe web site. PC would be too much to hope for.
