Is it not possible to create a private google translate form?

I want to add text to one text filed (English) and when i press the button "Translate" i get the resulting text in the other text field (Danish).

Please see the attached code.

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">
<html xmlns="">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>

<form id="form1" name="form1" method="post" action="">
  <label for="textEN"></label>
  <textarea name="textEN" id="textEN" cols="45" rows="5"></textarea>
  <input type="submit" name="Translate" id="Translate" value="Translate" />
  <label for="textDA"></label>
  <textarea name="textDA" id="textDA" cols="45" rows="5"></textarea>

    You could use code to submit the form, scrape the result and then fill in your form in this way but that would very likely break the terms and conditins of googles site as you are.... stealing their idea and their dictionary and using it yourslef.
