Does anyone know any (free) online sites, services, or software such that, when I type regular English, it automatically translates to Old English?

I wrote a short composition, and I am curious to see what it would look like in the Old English language.

One of the best available sites on-line to translate Modern English to Old English or from Old English to Modern English is the site:

http://www.oldenglishtranslator.co.uk/

There are sevreal others avaliable, but the quality of the translation is dubious at best. Oxford had a site that was considered the most accurate, but it is currently unavailable. I have no information on when it will be restored.

One of the more popular Old English dictionariy web site is the following site:
