I agree with you on Babel. One of the worse translation is from German to English, so finally got a German dictionary to help...because so many words in German does not translate at all on Babel.
Some languages are not too bad such as you said from French to English. What I use it for mostly is check my spelling of my French since I have not used it until now since I was 18-20 years old. That was a long time ago trust me.
To me many words in french just have a difference in spelling and big time speaking, as my speaking was terrible...got a D in that part but A's in reading, writing, translating the English to French and then the other way.
