Same method as yandex from a recent thread, built your query string some
way and send it to the server.

something like..
put urlencode("Text to translate") into tText
put  "" & tText &
"target_lang=EN&auth_key=YourAuthKeyHere" into tUrl
get URL tUrl
put it

You could also use POST rather than get using the same base url ( according to the documentation.
