I'm using about 3 on-line translation engines and my one year of college German. Sven Nordqvist's Morgen, Findus, wird's was geben. It was a Christmas present last year, appears to be an Advent story, 129p., and I made it through about 3 paragraphs last Holiday season, 8-)  Yes, we are total Pettsson&  Findus fans.

Are you using http://dict.leo.org/ as a resource? I also like 
http://www.freetranslation.com/ .

I play Lord of the Rings Online on a German server. While english is not 
uncommon as a second or third language for Germans, many of the people I 
game with speak only German, or have had only the minimum of english 
classes in school about as far back as I had french and spanish =)

I suppose if I actually learn to speak german, I will sound like a total 
gamer grrl geek, with heavy inclination to Bavarian and East German 
sounding accents =)
