Sorry, but I have missed the point. What is "Chinese wispers" at all?
Is it a sort of game when some phrase is consequently translated throw
a chain of languages and than accamulated bugs explored and laughted?
(It is called "isporchennyi telefon' ('broken phone') in russian).

If so, I can translate (with rather bad quality) from/to english to/from
russian, and from (alas not to) esperanto, german and maybe lojban.
