Bavaria but must write via snail mail to others, and that means translating
my letters into German. Can anyone suggest websites that do German/English
translation credibly. Sadly I thought I had one but my German friend told
me it was way off.

Using the first syntax I found one guide posted by Mr. Bernet and
using the second I found a different one. Both are worth reading.
