Look at:

ktranslator,
plasma-widget-translatoid
gnome-translate
freespeak
omegat
wordtrans-web
translate

Most bigger distro's like Ubuntu, OpenSUSE etc will probably have these in their repositories, so try to look for them through your age manager. A big warning though, Doing translations of complete texts usually isn't done well using automated translators. Word to word or maybe very short sentences may work, but longer or complicated texts usually get you a translated text that no one will understand, because many languages use different combinations of words to explain things. I've often ended up laughing after reading through badly translated texts.
