Is there: Language Translation Program in Linux?

Hey all,

I've been looking for a descent language translation program for Linux.
Preferably one with a few different languages. Not sure if such a thing exists, as I've been thru google and this site's searches.

The most I could find on Google was M$ programs, or "professional pay me to do it" type ads.

Done a bit of butchering :} ... errrh,
went to and found
those links interesting:
useful, even though they probably
aren't quite what you envisaged
(they are alright for word-to-word
translations, but you need to have
a fair idea of what you're doing to
make sense of the outcome).

If you're happy with something that
comes across like taiwanenglish you
can always use

But quite frankly: even the professional
products (I've tried a few demo-versions
of windows-software) don't do too well.

Can't you just use a web based service like google or altavista. I think that altavista has a better service than google though.
