Wandering on the internet I end more and more often on japanese websites. As I'm very bad at reading question marks, I can either close the page or jump to babelfish translation.
Japanese to English translation, if not perfect, enables to understand the general meaning of a text, better than nothing.
But copying the page url, going to babelfish, pasting, reading, is anoying.

Here comes Translate, a firefox extension which add a Translate function in Tools, and a button in your toolbar.
When on a Japanese page, hit translate and babelhish kicks in with immediate translation.
Linked page are also translated, which is usefull most of the time but can screw up navigation.
