I don't really know where to ask this, to I'l try here.
I've hade a Macbook 1.83, 1Gb RAM for a few months now and everything works just fine. However, recently I discovered that there is a powerpc application called "translate" running on my mac. I have no other powerpc-apps running (no rosetta emulation).
Does anyone have a clue on what this application is? It's quite annoying to have a powerpc app in the middle of the nice list of intel apps, since I have no idea why it's there.

My guess is that it's an older widget running in the dashboard.

Rosetta's implementation consists of a program (/usr/libexec/oah/translate), a daemon (/usr/libexec/oah/translated), a collection of library & framework shims (/usr/libexec/oah/Shims/*), and support in the kernel, which has explicit knowledge of the translate program.
You can try to eliminate the process via Activity Monitor, or via Terminal by typing:Code:
sudo killall translated__________________________________________________

Thanks for the answer.
My question is: Is it there by default, or did I change something to load it automatically somehow. I have tried kiling the app, and it works fine. It keeps coming back though...
