Just a FYI: I've used this site numerous times for terms, short phrases (and if you're lucky, an occasional long one). It can handle just about any language, and claims to spot the language if you're not sure. (Just used it to translate a Catalan title to English for a piece of music am working on.)

http://mymemory.translated.net/

If you're curious, I wanted the English for "La Nit de Nadal", a Catalan folk song. Translation was immediate: "On Christmas Eve". I've used it other times for Portuguese, Dutch, Italian, maybe some other languages I've lost track of.

Very simple: Home page has fields for the given phrase or word, select its language if you know it, select (translate to) English, or other language. (Once I had to request "Portuguese to Dutch" to get a relevant result.)

PS: Look at the drop-down menu for the impressive list of languages.

And wishing ALL, a VERY Happy Thanksgiving!
