Hi. I would like to translate a website for the first time. Are they really that difficult to translate? I been told to stay away from them.

Because all websites are vastly different, it depends entirely on the context and the type of files the customer sends you. I don't think one can say that websites are difficult in general and that they should be avoided. I have translated several websites and each job went quite smoothly.
In my experience, customers have typically sent me the text from the website in an MS-Word file format, which was then quite easy to translate and deliver. If you are sent HTML files, you can use Trados TagEditor or a similar translation memory tool to translate the text and preserve the code.
If you are asked to do more than translate the text, then perhaps the customer needs the help of a website designer in addition to your translation services.
Hope that helps! Good luck!
