Google Chrome Extension 'Social Translate,' detects the language of your friends' posts on orkut and then automatically translates it into a language of your choice. The extension allows you to select a primary language and a list of secondary languages you can read without translation. You can also select two different modes of translation, "reliable" or "aggressive". "Reliable" is set by default and will only translate feeds for which it's confident of the translation. "Aggressive" might be a bit less accurate but will attempt to translate more posts.
Besides orkut, Social Translate also works with other social sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Flickr. It'll help you stay engaged with your friends around the world who speak different languages, and it'll also give you an opportunity to interact with people you might never have been able to, due to language barriers.
