First of all, I'm a bit new here, so I need some help, and thanks in advance.

Secondly, the actions I'm looking for:
Google Translate (there is already one, but only for Safari, I need one for Chrome)
Also, units converter (cm to in, ft to m, kg to stone, ml to l, etc.)

While not exactly actions, these are my workarounds for your two needs:

For google translate, try adding this search template to Launchbar's index: http://translate.google.com/#auto/en/*

For unit conversion, might I suggest the built-in google search? For instance, typing in 5cm to m will yield some auto-complete results, the first of which is usually what you want:

If for some reason it isn't, press enter and you'll get it straight from google.
