if you want it doing properly don't rely on software as more often than not the translation will not make much sense, or at least not have quite the same meaning as the original.

best bet is to look for a proper translation service, although with 23 languages I would expect it'll cost BIG money.

failing that, just do this...

however we need somesort of automatic translation depending on end-user native country

go through each language on the google translation site and copy the URL of the translated pages then create a drop-down list which allows visitors to select their language. The bit that'll take the longest is gathering the URL's. I don't think any 'paid for' automated software is going to offer you anything better than google will, other than the lack of google branding.

You'll end up with Engrish pages...
