http://www.avantbrowser.com/ is the home page for a great browser. I use it in addition to Internet Explorer. I pull up an Italian or French or German blog I want to read and copy the permalink into Avant brower and pull it up there. Then I hit the tools pull down menu and Translate is the first link. I have several options for translation. I can read most any website this way, regardless of language.
I also keep another explorer browser window upon with babelfish.com open so that I can paste my English comment into it and translate into the language of the blog I want to post on. I sometimes get comments from the blog host saying my language use is a bit funny, but it has never been called rude.
