I reviewed Arimaa on a Finnish board games site:
http://www.lautapeliopas.fi/peliarvostelut/arimaa/
 
The Google translation is unfortunately horrible.  
http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&prev=_t&hl=fi&ie= UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&sl=fi&tl=en&u=http://www.lautapeliopas.fi/peliarvostelut/arimaa/&act=url
 
I'm not sure whether one can automatically translate it with any engine. There's some puns and I wonder why anyone would spend their time on making a good Finnish translator =)
 
edit: I especially liked the "Size does not matter" headline translation since the original has the opposite meaning in different words.

Thanks for the review Henrik. I used the built in translator in Chrome and right from the first sentence I was enjoying the translation Smiley
 
"Abstract board games are often shunned the theme of deprivation and pregnancy."
 
The owner of the site sent me a link to it and said it was a very glowing review.

It's good to hear you enjoyed the collaborative effort of me and Google Translator. Smiley
