For translation, at least, there is a significantly better option than Google that is also free: www.deepl.com. It doesn't offer anywhere near as many language pairs but it has all those that most of us in Switzerland are interested in, and the quality of the translation is head and shoulders above that of Google Translate.
I use both and tend to find that sometimes one is better than the other. Often Google will be slightly more sensible in its word choice/phrasing than deepl. Other times it's the reverse. And lately if deepl finds an English word in something you want translated into English it simply won't do it. Had one the other day; a Russian paragraph that had an English word in it so deepl said English detected and promptly changed the translation to be done to French.
