There are a few "decent" web base translators online. Google has a pretty good one:

Google | https://translate.google.com/ | https://translate.google.com/#auto/ja/Yeah%20whatever. (Yeah, whatever)

Also, CR sort of frowns upon "personal question" threads so this might get nuked. If it does, re-post your question here if you don't get the answer you seek:

- The General Help/Advice Thread
- http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-1099/the-general-helpadvice-thread

Hope that helps.

I know of web based translations, though i understand the grammar is... a bit off on most of them.

I'm not sure if an online translator can output the cultural equivalent or capture the sarcasm and general connotations of the phrase. Even if the literal translation is nowhere near similar there could be a completely different phase that is commonly used. In this case you need not a direct translator but a human interpreter.

I'm not sure if this fits what you're looking for but "dou-demo ii" or "shiranai\shiran" are both phrases commonly used to express unconcern in the subject :3
