    I'm sure there is one out there that is more accurate than Google that is free. Does anyone know any good ones that I can go to?

    All online translators work best for a combination of English and Spanish/German/French, and they're only good if you want to generally understand something. If you want it to be 100% correct, then don't bother with this, find a native speaker. Here's a forum where you'll always find help, no matter what the language is: http://forum.wordreference.com/index.php

    Don't use machine translation.

    Actually it's more than useful sometimes. For example, my dad who doesn't speak English uses it to translate the whole Wikipedia pages to Serbian and read it. Sure, there are some grammatical mistakes but you can perfectly understand it.
