Multi language in OpenCart vs Google Translate

Hi Experts,

Im working on a new OpenCart store. My client wants to have Korean and English languages in it. So first I thought, ok easy, just setup Google Translate add-on and done. But then I got to know the full requirement.

Client wants the visitors to be able to translate the website (Maybe using Google Translator), but if the visitor decides to print a product (The standard product page on OpenCart with pictures etc) it should print Korean and English both. But with Google translate, I believe there's no way to do it? I looked at its API, but Google charges $20 for 1Million characters and unfortunately I am looking for a opensource free solution as my client is on a tight budget.

Have you guys come across something like this at all? Please help.

Thanks
Uds

When they add products, just have them enter text in both languages.    Otherwise, I think people today are smart enough to know  how to get things translated through the browser.  Also, I thought the translation is not always so great.  

Figure your time @ $100ish per hour or 5,000,000 character translations.  Now how much are they willing to spend on you to save them on translation services?
