This Bookmarklet can really help you if you are a researcher or something. It adds the power of Google's Translation right to your webbrowser. I made some changes to a piece of code found on the net to build this. You may need this nifty feature if you visit many foreign web pages.;-)

As the bookmarklet ran in to trouble when i added a menu for selecting the translation schema, i had to remove that. So now you will have to enter a number between 0-17 to do the translation. Use the below given table to get the correct number for the translation schema of your choice.

English to German - 0 English to Spanish - 1 English to French - 2
English to Italian -3 English to Portuguese - 4 English to Japanese - 5
English to Korean - 6 English to Chinese (Simplified) - 7 German to English - 8
German to French - 9 Spanish to English - 10 French to English - 11
French to German - 12 Italian to English - 13 Portuguese to English - 14
Japanese to English - 15 Korean to English - 16 Chinese (Simplified) to English - 17
