destination_language must be a language code, like en for English or pt-BR for Brazilian Portuguese. You can also set a value for sl (source language) instead of "auto".
Just go on Google Translate and paste the URL to translate in the left box. Select your target (and source) language and click on the resulting link in the right box.
You will be redirected to the translated website in the desired language. The URL can be shared with others to share the translated website.
Because the translation URLs are very long, I tend to shorten them with http://goo.gl/.
