What is the most-translated film of all time?

I'll give you a clue: The most-translated film is not Gone With the Wind, Star Wars or even Transformers. On the other hand, like most popular movies, it has a traditional three-act structure, a charismatic hero with a strong sense of purpose, dramatic reversals of fortune -- and a happy ending.

Wow, that is very impressive!
And the challenge continues as The “Jesus” film team that plans to continue translation of the film well beyond its 1,000 mark, and focus on languages with more than 100,000 speakers. (http://www.christianpost.com/article/20070619/28060_'Jesus'_Film_on_Verge_of_Reaching_1,000th_Translation.htm)
