Google's got a new phrase translation tool designed to provide better results for single-word lookups. The results currently offer translations and related phrases in a limited set of languages.
I've tried it out and I'm glad to say that, for the likes of us at any rate, it's pretty awful!

I mainly use the language pair of German and English because one of my translation agencies often gives me MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) script(s) and I often encounter some untranslated German words and phrases in these English-language scripts ofMSDS. That is where Google's Translate Text comes into play. Before that, I used to make comments on thse German words and phrases; "I am sorry that I have a smattering of German..."
