How many languages can you speak/read?

By myself, I only know English. I have picked up some Japanese and Laotian, but I don't consider myself proficient at either, and I haven't practiced Spanish or German in years.

With a computer, I go all out with dictionaries and sentence parser tools, though the caveat is that I can only work with transcripts or writing. I do use machine translation tools, but I'm somewhat strict about the meaning being conveyed properly, thus prefer to verify the meanings with said dictionary tools before my brain comes up with a mostly literal translation that makes sense.

I do apologize if I misled anyone into believing that I'm some sort of polyglot. I'm just really good with a computer and have a handful of international friends that put up with me.
