    I would use google translator for the entire text and download a thecnical dictionary for the specific terms.

    I have a little experience trying to translate German programs for some machines at work. In general on line services will only get you part way with technical jargon. Part way might be as little as 5% translated in a way that makes sense.

    What i have done is to use a platform that supports online translation dictionaries (the Mac does this well). The combination of a translation, dictionary and a ful sentence of text can often allow you to make sense of the jargon. Often this can require block of text to start to make sense.

    In a nut shell the simple translation often fails to convey the programmers intent or is just local slang. It can take awhile to come to a rational translation if the local jargon escapes you.
