There are several websites offering on-line translation into or from a number of European languages. Inevitably, the results are approximate, occasionally comical, but they are a useful aid to understanding the content and they are free.
www.dictionary.com will translate any text that you type in or paste in from a document, or it will translate an entire web page if you type in the URL (web address). You can also look up individual words. Why not try it out, using the banner at the top of the page?
AltaVista BabelFish is another online translation service. Just copy and paste your text containing up to 150 words for translation into the box, select the target language and instantly get the result. You can also paste or type a URL (web address into another box, enabling you to have an approximate translation of a complete web page)
