Unfortunately, almost ALL of the translators in SL, including the one built into the LL Viewer code, relied on the formerly-free Google Translate API to function. Google closed that free service, and made it a paid service that is rather expensive in the context of something like SL chat. 

If anyone knows of a functiuoning free translator that works, and is confirmed to work, please post that info here.

You can connect the translate feature in any V2/V3-based viewer to a paid service, either from Google or from Bing Translate, if you set up an account for yourself with that paid service and are willing to pay the fees they charge. As I recall, the Bing service has a small level of free translation, but you'll burn through that pretty fast if you use translation a lot.

Lindal Kidd is right. It works and it is your best bet.

But there are problems with it. See: http://blog.nalates.net/2015/03/16/second-life-update-on-metanomics-translator/

I have been trying to gte Bing or Google API's to work with the viewer. I can't. It appears the API's have changed and the viewer does not supports NEW API numbers.
