I was able in the past to do that, but I can't find how anymore.
All I had to do is to click in the "Translate" button and the URL was updated. The instant translation doesn't update the URL.
The URL format is:
http://translate.google.com/#origin_language_or_auto|destination_language|encoded_phrase or http://translate.google.com/translate?js=n&sl=auto&tl=destination_language&text=encoded_phrase
If you want to translate a webpage, use:
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".
Here's another alternative that works if you wanted to share the link on Facebook for instance:
This link, when clicked would take you to the Google Translate page, auto detect the language, and translate it from Russian into English. The "+" symbols are needed between the words in the phrase to be translated to insure that Facebook includes the entire phrase in the link.
For your convenience, here's a list of language abbreviations used by Google Translate:
The following table contains a recent list of languages supported by Google Translate.

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/.
