Language translation of web pages

I want to go to a German language website, and be able to read the pages in English.... I know that google has a "translate this page" link, as I used it the first time I went to the site, but when you go to the second and subsequent pages, they are in German, and there is no "translate this page" at the top, or bottom... any ideas how I can view the rest of the site in English?
Thanks

Babelfish is another translation site and you can put the URL of the page you want to translate into it.  I've used it to translate English/Spanish on a number of occasions and it gives you a reasonable translation.

@shutter
I hope that you only need a general indication of the website's script because usually the translations are quite amusing.
If you have any suspicions of the translation, I would be happy to assist you.
