Translation Sites

Okay, are there any English to Japanese Translation sites?
I don't know I have never seen any. I've seen sites that have enlighs translations of japanese songs but not the reverse. If there are not any sites that have english to japanese translation is there a reason?

Do you mean online translation programs, like Babelfish? Do you mean sites like this?

Sometimes I think that I'm afraid of thinking, and that scares me.

The OP might be asking for a site that has JP translations of EN songs though. I couldn't understand the OP's post, though, so I'm not completely sure.

Traditionally, foreign music sold in Japan has contained a translation in the package. And both Japanese and foreign music sold in Japan has traditionally contained a transcription of the lyrics.

Back before the internet came along and ruined things, I used to make a nice little side income transcribing lyrics for one music company.
Never underestimate my capacity for pettiness.

That's what I'm talking about. I'm sorry that I asked in such an confusing way.
