Our sites which carry our unique scientific copyrighted information are being run through a site that acts as an online Italian translation site. This site somehow removes our adsense code, adds in its own then goes on to serve out a poorly translated version of our site. Can anyone suggest how we can block/stop this happening. I'll sticky URL if anyone want to see.

I'm not sure I agree. First off, copyright does protect translations. Secondly, if it has been machine translated, it will likely be done by one of a few very common programs. Putting the original text in will result in the same output every time.
I have no issue with a site running our page through a 3rd party translator. I do have issues with sites stripping out our adsense code and replacing it with their own. I've checked into this and I have been informed it blatant copyright theft. We are trying to send a cease and desist letter which is proving to be difficult as it's an eastern block country.
