Online Translation

I guess everyone knows of Google Translate  accessible online where you can just type or paste in what you want to translate but did you know you can also upload whole documents (word, text, pdf, etc) for translation. And, of course, you can use the app on your phone to translate and it also has a camera function to point at the menu and translate before your eyes. Google is of course ‘free’.

There are other online translation sites. A member has recommended DeepL as giving a better translation but other than a limited amount of translation this is a paid for service.
