It is possible a plug-in to get the contents of selected text by
"textview_menu_popup" signal. It requires context menu to be opened by
right button click, though. You will be able to create a context-menu
based one ('menu -> Translate selected' or something).

I have created experimental Google search plug-in using this feature
(not released yet).
