in reply to change all occurances of string1 into string2

Too many curlies. toolic's advice is good, but you can safely remove even more:
Be careful, though, if one translation results in a word that another translation might translate again.
Sometimes, avoiding the inner loop by constructing the regex leads to a faster solution:
my $re = join '|', keys %translate; $re = qr/($re)/; while (<>) { s/$re/$translate{$1}/g; print; }
You might need to add some \b boundaries to the regex so it does not match in the middle of a word.
