    Does anyone have a URL please for a site that will take the URL of a German www site and then re-present that in (sort of) English...???

    Many thanks...

    Google also has a language service -

    http://www.google.com/language_tools

    The problem with all of the automated translation sites is that they are really transliteration sites - they can look up the words in a dictionary and present the word in the other language, and perhaps know some of the word-order rules, but finer points are not there yet. I've used the Google service for a while, and it seems to be slowly improving. As the software matures, it will get better.
