A quick bit of GOOGLE-Fu turned up this - not sure if it's what you're looking for tho.
I was curious if anybody here knows of any websites or resources for translating english into any form of classical greek?

Yeah I tried asking Mr.Google for both ancient and classical greek, but without much luck. The closest I found was one called kypros (sp?) that you could check a box for ancient greek instead of modern, but it had such a small dictionary built into it that I couldn't found any words that would translate...
It was a pretty frustrating search, so I asked here in the hopes that somebody else may have already found something I could use, but if not, I'll just mangle some modern greek and call it creativeness
Sorry no, but it does remind me of funny a story a friend once told me. He had a friend who was travelling to Greece and wanted to learn the language. He went to the local library and found a book on learning greek and studied it. When he got to greece he was at Pireaus and asked some guys at the warf about the time of the next boat to an island he wanted to travel to. They fell about laughing. Turns out he had learned middle Greek so to our ears what he said would have sounded like: 'Prithee, cans't thou tell me what time a boat will travel to yonder isle?'
Haha that's awesome Ravells
I kinda wish more people talked like that

Well it's very difficult to find a site like that...it will probably do a work like Systran does which in most of the cases is a failure(but at least it's funny )
If it's not that much of a big text you want to translate or you're stuck somewhere i'm greek so pm me i may be able to help a bit at least with the modern XD
