This is the most powerful translation site I've ever found (click for English top right): http://wehewehe.org/

You can also find books on the Hawaiian language in both English and Hawaiian: http://ulukau.org/index.php?l=en

Ulukau was founded by Hale Kuamoʻo and is co-sponsored by Hale Kuamoʻo, Ka Haka ʻUla O Keʻelikōlani, University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo and the Native Hawaiian Library, ALU LIKE, Inc.

Founding financial support was provided by the Administration for Native Americans. Continuing support is provided by the Department of Education.

Pretty cool, no?
