IMPORTANT UPDATE: Kindlefish is back with a whole new look! Please read more about it here.
So I fixed it. I present to you: Kindlefish!
Asian languages and languages with non-Latin alphabets show up beautifully, but only if you're using the 3G. Sorry K1, K2, and DX users!
One note on accuracy: This is Google Translate, and it does a pretty good job, but there are times when things don't come across 100% right. In this case, the right phrase would have been "Går denna spårvagn till biblioteket?", but in this case Google picked up on "does" as the main verb and missed some grammar. As it stands, it reads, "Do this bus goes to the library?". In practice, that should be close enough for people to understand what you want and help you.
But, how about the other way? Let's change this to Swedish, and try some phrases:
This time it was right on, even without the ability to enter umlauts. The input text should have been "smörgåsar" (which is the root of "smorgasbord", by the way), but Google translate did a decent enough job figuring out what was missed. As a US centric device, the Kindle does not do a lot to support input of foreign languages so non-English to English is likely to be dicey.
In the end, I'm happy with it and it will certainly help with my upcoming trips! I hope that it helps you too!

And where does it work? Just about anywhere:
Wired's Gadgetlab, Booksprung, and Business Insider! Big Thanks!
