You're right up to here.. the problem is nothing will trigger the
time_translate event.  You need to use one of the existing events that
will fire for http connections.

I would try:

event HTTP::log_http(rec: HTTP::Info)

I believe that fires just before the entry is logged, if that doesn't
work an event like connection_established or http_request would
definitely work.
