Currently, the hurd can only read ext2fs and vintage ufs partitions.
A fat translator has yet to be written.

Not exactly, there is an info page or:

settrans --help

All gnu utilities support this flag, including translators themselves (they
are not special).  Therefor /hurd/ext2fs --help will also work.

No good way.  This has to do with the message passing properties of
hurd/mach.  Try showtrans on a node to see how it is setup.
However, since you are only looking for active translators (ie those
running, correct?) you could to ps -A and figure it our yourself.
