Quickly translate any web page Internet
To quickly translate any page from Japanese to English, first visit the page you would like to translate. Then paste the following into the address bar:

javascript:location.href='http://babelfish.altavista.com/tr?&lp=ja_en&url='+location.href;

You can even add a link to your favorites that will translate any page:

Translate into Japanese

These can be modified to work with different languages, and you can reverse the "ja_en" (for example) to translate in the other direction.

I have used <http://www.freetranslations.com/default.htm?tab=web> for several Eurpean languages.

They also have a free service where you can place translation links on your web pages. I use this for my site. It is about 80% accurate. Very cool.

Regards,

You could also learn Japanese ;)
Seriously, very nice hint! Still, altavista's japanese translator is aweful, witness: "As for broadcast schedule it must become modification depending upon news and the like it is. Please acknowledge beforehand."

Someone just asked me to translate a Japanese webpage the other day! My Nihongo isn't so hot these days though so I was thrilled to be able to do it, 'Print' it, 'Preview' it and save it off as a PDF that he could read on Windows.

I love this computer and this OS!

I love it! Here is how to make it accessible with one click from my browser: Click on the following link and drag it to your Favorites bar, or ctrl-click the link to add it to your bookmarks/favorites, --choose according to your preferences and needs. ja_en Now, you can go and see all the marvelous stuff that the Japanese produce for our beloved platform. (Be prepared for syntax such as "the apple" and "mack"...) Here is a link I follow daily: atarashi monosuki no download

Quickly translate any web page
Authored by: mahakali on May 24, '03 12:47:39AM
I just found this script to directly translate the whole page:
javascript:void(location.href='http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish/urltrurl?url='+location.href+'&lp=de_en&tt=url')
all in 1 line without space and you can change de_en to something else.
