Newbie question

Hello

Just got a Sony Reader PRS 600 for my birthday and I noticed there are books already there in German. Since I don't read German I was wondering if I should delete them or is it possible to translate them into English?
Maybe they would then be of interest to me.
So, is it possible to tranlate books into English?

Thanks

its possible using some online translators but it'd probably be pretty bad.

http://translate.google.com. However the translation will be far from perfect. Plus, those are invariably samples and not complete books. It's usually just the first chapter or two. The one or two MP3s they include sounded nice, though I accidentally deleted them when I first got my reader.
