Looking to have a name written in various languages.

Greetings all. I am helping a friend of mine with a small project - an invitation of sorts. Is there a "free" resource out there that allows you to convert a name into various languages? For example, we would like to know what the name would be in Russian, Chinese, Hebrew, Gaelic, Japanese, German, etc etc etc and any other ones we can get access to.
Can anyone help that may know of a resource(s) for this purpose? Again, we are doing this for an up coming invitation so I don't have a lot of time to go to a language department at a local university, etc, but we are looking for "accurate" interpretations of names. (the only reason why I ask if to be "accurate" is because I know of someone who "thought" they had a phrase tattooed on their body, but later found it to be something else; the person who translated it didn't do it correctly).
