Not sure this is the direction you want to go, but I have a very
simple set of stacks that i'm using to help me (attempt) to learn
spanish.

Not pictures, different method.  Basically its 1 stack with a field
that you can paste into (or theres a button where you can paste the
text to work with)  Then all it does is feed the clickword to google
translate in the 2nd stack thats just a revbrowser instance  IE:
http://translate.google.com/?hl=en#es|en|pescado would return the
definition of pescado.

Then just start with the simplest spanish website I can find, paste in
the text and start reading.   And I think its working.
I use http://www.google.com.mx or http://www.google.es to look for
spanish stuff to read.  For italian of course use www.google.it

My stacks aren't great, but work ok. I'm sure it would take you all of
10 minutes to duplicate, but if you like i'll send you mine.
