Reading Apps - Translation Question

Background: While reading on the Kindle PaperWhite, if you encounter a word or phrase in a non-English language, highlighting the word/phrase brings up a menu - one of the choices is "Translate" - and it does a fairly decent job of recognizing the language and providing a translation. This is done without leaving the page you're reading - a "quick & dirty" way to not interrupt your reading by having to highlight, copy & paste the word/phrase into another screen, or leave the page to open up a browser.

Question: Do any of the android reading apps (Moon, Mantano, etc.) have a similar capability? Does any app allow you to translate foreign words/phrases while reading without having to exit or close the reading app and open a browser window?

Coolreader and Moon+ Reader Pro have ColorDict integration, so if you have the right dictionaries installed, translation is available offline. ColorDict can also search Wikipedia (without opening a browser window) and translate that way if you are on line. Moon+ Reader Pro also has a translate option (Google) which opens a browser window for you.

Thank you! I had looked at the list of features in Moon+ - which included "Translate" - but couldn't find any detailed information on how it worked. I'll definitely take a look at both of these apps!
