Romanian is a Romance language, fifth in terms of number of speakers. It's the native language of 26000000 people and it's the official language in Romania, Moldova and Vojvodina (Serbian region).
Speakers of other Romance languages, especially Italian speakers, should have an easier time accustoming themselves with Romanian compared to the rest.

If you want to translate a piece of Romanian into English or vice-versa online, then you're out of luck as there aren't any quality tools for this (such as Babelfish for other languages). You'd be better off if you request the services of a specialized company or make some Romanian friends for the moment.
