Since some time, Trados includes an automatic translation feature. I've tried it, and it's not very good. It's not even good for MT standards. In fact, I keep it on for the amusement it provides.
Today:
Source: Cloud Scan disabled
Target: Vertroebel onderzoekende gehandicapte Blik.
that's Dutch for (roughly): opaque inquisitive handicapped regard.

Earlier:
Source: If not logged on
Target: Indien niet gehakt hout aanwezig
(if not chopped wood present)

And my all-time favourite:
Source: Drag and Drop
Target: Rukken en druppelen
(jerking and dripping)
