Do e-readers have language packages on them to translate books?

    It depends on the particular ebook reading device.  For most devices, they will support books in other languages (usually in a language pack, such as Western), but will not translate the books.  One example is the NOOK by Barnes & Noble, which will display books written in English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German.  However, you would not be able to purchase a book written in English and translate it into Spanish, you would have to repurchase the Spanish version of that book.  Many devices also support languages outside their language pack if they are embedded in the file formate, such as if you had a .pdf in Japanese.
