Not sure how long this has been available, but it's pretty neat...

Systran, which makes translation software, apparently has partnered with
Altavista to provide real-time translation of Web pages.  You type in your
URL or click the "translate" button after a search, and your page is
translated into the language of your choice from among:  Spanish, French,
Italian, German, Portugese or English.

Server seems a bit sluggish; this is probably the shakedown cruise phase...
