Hi @stokes ,
I also used deepl, that @email@example.com suggested, for some translations on switching.software (English isn't my first language 😁). But I also wouldn't use it on confidential or sensitive content.
There are some free translators in development, but unfortunately they currently lack language pairs and features:

I'd second the votes for DeepL / Linguee 👍
And just to be sure to avoid any misunderstandings: All "free" AI-based translation services will use your data to train their algorithms. 🤖
And if you're doubtful as to whether you should feed a potentially confidential text to DeepL and alike, then uploading such a text to Google Translate should be an absolute no-go! 👹
