This application acts as a client to several of these services and helps arrive at reliable translation, gives you an opportunity to compare and choose the best options.

Cons: Automatic translation is always a little tricky. While freestanding words may get translated quite well but phrases and sentences make the translations difficult. A lot of contextual information is necessary in such translations.

Overall: This is a very good and useful service besides being a free source application. This is clearly at a level of 4 stars.
