paid google translate question


I have translated a few documents (no tags - only English text to French) with the free Google Translate (document) and found sentences that seem to be grammatically correct are broken with dots inserted in unexpected places sometimes. This was a test to determine if paying for the service was a justifiable expense, it seems it may not be.
The free service and the paid service are reported to use the same software/databases but perhaps the way of submitting the data gives a different result (one full document in the free service versus one sentence at a time in the paid service).

Is anyone aware of a difference between the free service and the paid service as far as result is concerned?

Thank you for your help.

Where do you access the Google Translate Document paid version? I can only access the free one at https://translate.google.com/#view=home&op=docs
Maybe is it a software/text editor plugin and not a webapp?
I wasn't even aware there was a paid version...

Excusez-moi. I was referring to the paid translation service, I do not think there is an equivalent "document" paid translation although the paid service seems to expect the user to submit plain text sentences (parts of a document) one at a time through CURL or similar.

^ Ok, so you are speaking about Google Cloud Translation API instead (https://cloud.google.com/translate/)?
