Google Translate Mouse Hover Balloons

Or Microsoft or whoever will make it a standard
  [vote for,

Word by word language translation so that you can point your mouse at a word and after one second the translation will pop up. This would make it easy to memorize vocabulary in a new language - by reading in your own language and getting the immediate translation of anything you don't know. Whoever makes this something I can download for free gets a big present from me.

       Eu acredito que esta é uma idéia grande.   

       But what is this that this is that that? What good idea!

       Translation doesn't happen word-for-word, but phrase-by-phrase, or even thought-by-thought oftentimes. Might be at least as effective as Babelfish.

       Very nice, you may have one of my "special" croissants which I reserve for ideas that are actually good instead of funny and can be made without buying 5bn metric tonnes of latex/a satellite/Denmark.

       Que buena idea. Dependiendo de donde busques, puedes encontrar traductores automáticos que son verdaderamente buenos. (Paint-on condoms by [AfroAssault] now only $19.95/dozen)
