Actually, you can bypass language restrictions by using emotes.
/em says you are B*LLSH*TT*NG me!"
Wrong!actually, the other guy only reads that you are doing (I don't know the exact translation) "weird gesture" they only see the common emotes...
(I know it,I argued with a noob who didn't believed me 15 minutes about that, and tested it with an alliance toon just to prove I was right...)
You speak the truth. If you use "/e LOL PUN", the other person will read "%t does some weird gestures."
It is still posible, however, to bypass this: There are some addons designed specifically for this purpose. You open the addon and type "message", and you will /w your target something like "A B A B B B A B B A B A B B A"(your message in binary, 'tis long). This results in a huge spam/text wall, but if your target has that same addon, it will automatically translate it.
Still, it's very situational, unpractical, and almost noone has it installed, so a better choice might be using the forum.
Also, there is Project Azeroth: A random string of gibberish turns out to be a readable message to the other faction. For example, if you are a gnome (ONLY WORKS FOR GNOMES) and say in gnomish "Aa - G j j e d b q j - B c - D c t t q q", a hordie would read "W e - A d d i c t e d - T o - C o k e". This works because the "scrambling system" is fixed, and determined by the letters used.
