Finally, Ask has begun to offer page translation for some languages. According to the Ask Jeeves blog entry last night named Word Up they are now offering page translation;
Page Translation is now available on Ask.com. Why haven't we had it in the past? Because we didn't have many foreign-language pages in our index. As we approach site launches in Europe next year, the index has taken on a more international flavor. Voila! We need a codebreaker for those who do not speak seven languages (like most of the folks on our international team). Look for the "Translate this page" link.
They are offering more things explained at the Ask Jeeves blog so check it out.
Also, I clicked on Translate this Page for angela merkel search and it allows me to "Save translated page to My Jeeves." Nice addition.
