I am looking various language translation apps and services for a portal application. I am aware of Google's Cloud Translation API and their pricing structure. However, someone mentioned to me that it is possible to implement the free, open-source website version of Google translate into my app. If this is true, what is someone paying for when he purchases Cloud Translation API? What makes Cloud Trans worth more than its free counterpart?

  • In general price worthiness is a highly subjective matter. Similar products/services with different prices (or vastly different ones but with similar prices) appeal differently to different people (and for different reasons). – Dan Cornilescu Nov 2 '17 at 14:58
  • You may want to provide more details/references about this free counterpart are you referring to. – Dan Cornilescu Nov 2 '17 at 15:22
  • @DanCornilescu This thing: translate.google.com/manager/website/add – bloomers Nov 2 '17 at 15:28
