    Anyone know of any online translation utils which can reasonably translate a
    Dutch webpage into English? Google doesn't seem to do Dutch and the
    Babelfish translation has to be seen to be believed!
    Thanks in advance for any help/links etc.

    My Google Toolbar does it really well.

    Thanks. Useful site, but not much better than Babelfish for the engineering
    and automotive terms.

    Can't find any Dutch on my Google Toolbar or anywhere else on Google for
    that matter.
    Thanks anyway.

    I've used this

    for blocks of Dutch text.

    Any good for you?

    For the sections of some of the pages without photos I may actually take you
    up on that. I'll have a look at some of the 'translations' I've got so far
    and I'll let you know if I can't deduce the meaning of the phrases.
    Thanks for the offer.

  8. Online translation of Dutch is always going to be bad - their grammar is
    all fucked up.

    You'd want to ping Spete and/or cloggy mike who posts as 'mb'. IIRC
    there's another one around these parts, but I can't remember their handle.

    If it's not a huge stack of stuff, you could point me at it. Or, more
    accurately, my other half.

    We could probably lend you a Dutch-Engels dictionary, if that helps.

    The actual page can't be linked directly (don't know why)
    The homepage is:
    Then go to : "Tips en Trucs"
    Then scroll down to section: "Motorisch-Versnellingsbak"
    The page I need is titled: "Vacuumpomp".

    There is a fair bit of text on there but I'd appreciate some help with a
    real translation.

    Much appreciated.

    The old right click, properties, copy and paste trick eh?
    I love the Uri Geller spanner.

    I'm intrigued by the mention of "gat 9mm". Is it about guns, then?
