I use Entourage for my email accounts but I keep getting a pop up saying
"translate wants to use your confidential information stored in "[my email account]" in your keychain.
Do you want to allow access to this item?"

By always allowing I found the location through keychain - /usr/libexec/oah/translate but I can't locate it through finder.

I am worried that this might be malware, does anyone know what it is?

Are you using Entourage 2004? –  gentmatt May 22 '12 at 8:41

It looks like /usr/libexec/oah/translate is Rosetta, an Apple program to allow programs developed for PowerPC architecture to run on the newest Intel Mac.

So I don't think it's a malware, just Mac OS using Rosetta to run Entourage.
