I often visit foreign sites (mostly japanese) and am wondering if anyone can recommend a program that I can use to translate the text with. I don't really know if such a program exists (if it doesn't please tell me) but I want something that I maybe highlight the text, then am able to right-click and select translate and a small window pops up that has the translated text.
Like I said I don't know if such a program exists, but there just has to be something like what I described out there. Also, money is not an issuee. Any help would be appreciated.

Haven´t u tried PROMT 8? It comes in almost all language pairs. You can download a trial version (30 days) for free.
It translates Word/Adobe/Excel files. It opens in a new document, window or translation bar.
Blackfire: Several automatic translation systems have the kinds of features you are looking for.
Irene: PROMT can also process HTML files.
For info, there are usually web browser translation modules as part of the package of the automatic translation systems. Also, the translation environment can often also process HTML content. It is in the translation environment (called PROMT for PROMT, or the STPM in SYSTRAN) that it is possible to highlight specific paragraphs or texts and translate them.
This is not possible with the online translation portals such as Google, Babelfish, and similar sites.
A list of software reviews of all such software is available at the Language Technology Evaluation site: http://www.geocities.com/langtecheval/
