Worth Mentioning:

Many people have a common misconception that free online translation services are the same as automatic translation generation tools. While they can help you translate certain websites and blogs, they often do not offer an option to translate text locally or privately. If you want to use a translation tool, choose a service that lets you enjoy your privacy.
