For many years I thought the \"Rittmeister\" who after a 4-leg circular translation returned as \"Leutnant, Kapitän zur See\" was unbeatable, but I was wrong.

Today I saw \"Friherre Natt och Dag\" return as \"Gräsänklingen levde rajtan-tajtan dygnet runt\" after a 3-leg computer aided circular translation.

Can anybody beat that one?
