Here is a little application I banged together today to translate texts using Google's translate engine. It works from the desktop and obviates the need to load a heavy, java-script-supporting browser. It is written in bash and makes use of gtkdialog, gxmessage and bing, a tiny ping substitute I wrote because it quits after a second unlike ping if the DNS cannot be resolved (i.e. if your connection is dead).
