I've been using Apertium Bokmaal-Nynorsk transaltion pair for political reasons. Norways biggest news paper has forbidden nynorsk, and I've set up a site that does a translation using Apertium. It uses quite a lot of RAM so I needed to cache quite agressively, but it works quite OK.
People quickly notice many faults, but it's mostly to gather attention, not actually to be used. http://nynorskvg.no/
I hung around in the IRC channel a bit for it, - and the development community is very welcoming and nice.
