Hi Anh,

Bioconductor provides many packages to let you do that.  To find out

And here you can find the latest release of these annotations packages:


If you are looking to translate human mappings, as in your web page then 
you might want to try this package:


And finally, if you use that specific package you will probably want to 
pay attention to the org.Hs.egGENENAME, org.Hs.egSYMBOL, and 
org.Hs.egALIAS2EG mappings. to get information about your question.  
Other annotation packages will have similar mappings available.
