You can't translate because the translator no longer works.  It was supported by Google's Translate API, which used to be a free service.  Google stopped offering it for free in December, though, and your bult-in translator went dead.  If you try to use it, it gives you an error message.  If you really want built-in translation, you can use the current V3 viewer or Firestorm and pay Google for a subscription to th translation API.  When you enter your personal account key into the viewer, it will work.  Those viewers will also accept a subscription key from Bing's free translation service, if you would rather subscribe to it instead of Google's. 

Now, I don't know why the check box would be grayed out on your viewer unless LL changed something in their latest server upgrade.  If relogging doesn't clear it, you may need to delete your user preference folders and let the viewer rebuild them.
