Microsoft Translator Bookmarklet

The Microsoft Translator Bookmarklet is a simple little tool for translating the content on any webpage. To use the Microsoft Translator Bookmarklet just specify the language that you want content to be translated into then install the bookmarklet. Then whenever you're viewing a webpage you can click on the browser bookmarklet to translate the page. Installing the bookmarklet is a simple drag and drop process.

Applications for Education
I'm not sure how accurate the translations provided by Microsoft Translator are, but if it's not accurate that provides a learning opportunity. You could ask students to correct errors in translation.
