For those that are interested in translations, I have used Deepl to translate quite a few books from several languages such as Russian. For example, I translated the entire help file for the programming language PascalABC.Net and a book written in Greek for FreeBasic. It does a pretty good job of translating, maintaining hyperactive links and formatting code correctly .. although there is some minor formatting issues, like spacing, but none are 'show-stoppers'. For large amounts of text, Most translation services offer free translations with a limit, for larger translations, most if not all services are a paid service. I have found Deepl (paid service) to work well for my needs which is pay as you go.
