    Considering how many lines of C some of the macros expand to, and how little the English version will assist you, I strongly expect that not to help very much.

    Assuming, that is, that you could easily let it know about all of the layers of macros that were the original problem.

      I think even there were to be a tool that could extract English out of such macros. The English would be an encyclopedia of C terms, in dense texts under many scopes. Such a thing would be more difficult to understand than actual macros themselves.
