Text Translation.  There are only a few free online translation sources for text.  We list some of the most popular and best ones below.

Single-Source - means that the website has translation text boxes for translating text between multiple language pairs using just their own translation tool.

Multi-Source - means that the website has translation text boxes for translating text between multiple language pairs using a variety of translation tools. 

Guess Language.  Some websites have a capability where you paste in sample text for an unknown language and get an evaluation of the language.  These still had a pretty limited capability and didn't always guess correctly in many cases. 
 

Google Language Tools
Free Single-Source You can instantly translate text and webpages and even a website using their free tools between a number of language pairs.  Their automatic website translation is really cool because once you put in the URL of the website or a page from it and click on a link to go to another page on that website, the new page is also translated automatically.
