Windows 7: Foreign Site Auto-Translation

Foreign Site Auto-Translation

How do you get IE8 to automatically translate a website, and display site, in your language?
Neither my XP or W7 machine, both use IE8, will show me a german site in english. I used to go to the site in IE7 and it would be in english, now nada.
I'm not interested in changing browsers so please, do say use firefox, etc.....
I use Google as homepage.

I use Bing Translate, included in IE8.

Click Page menu, hover (don't click) over Translate with Bing. A small window opens, you can choose original language and to with language you want to translate. Usually I just click Translate this page and let Bing auto-detect the original language.

Windows 7 translation
Hey, I have a problem with Win 7 automatically translating text. For instance, I have in a PDF Greek letters and when I copy those letters from the PDF to say word or notepad it appears as Englsih letters. Does anyone know how to disable this?
