Project Idea: Clean in these Countries

Today I made up a word to name a top sekrit project.  It’s one of those words you look at and wonder “Does this means something obscene in Croatian?”  I looked around for a tool that could quickly tell me what this word means in a bunch of different languages, and I didn’t have much luck finding one.

There are plenty of tools that will let you do translation, and even a few multi-translators.  But they all assume you know the language you are translating from.  In this case, we don’t.

What I want is a tool where you put in a word, it translates it from every language it possibly can, into English.  Then it would show all the results in a list.  It looks like Google AJAX Language API could be used to do this.
