I admit my bias to using FIrefox.  I don't know whether this works in IE.  However, we can create a "bookmarklet" using Javascript.  My code is as follows:

javascript:(function(){var%20g='http://www.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=en&tl=es&anno=2&u=';var%20a=prompt('Which%20URL?');if(a){document.location.href=g+encodeURIComponent(a);}})();

Create a new bookmark on your bookmark toolbar, and in the "Location" field, paste the javascript code seen above.  Give it whatever name you wish.  Once you click on it, you should be prompted to enter the URL you want to view.
