My comment:

Please see below the main multilingual sources most translators use. I recommend you keep them all in your Favorites on top of your screen, for future uses.

My references:

All-round English explanatory dictionary:

https://www.thefreedictionary.com/wait

All-round translation website (sentence translations might be slightly erroneous in the Wordreference part, as entered by volunteers... but the Collins dictionary is totally reliable - see the 2 tabs):

https://www.wordreference.com/enpt/please
https://www.wordreference.com/enpt/wait

Automatic translators:

This site won't help you this time, but many other times, yes:

And don't forget Wikipedia (page titles are often translated in other languages) and the Wiktionary (especially for recent neologisms, the plural and feminine forms, etc):
https://www.wikipedia.org/
https://www.wiktionary.org/

-> I suggest you keep them all in the Favorites on top of your screen.

That being said, professional translators normally only translate into their mother tongue, for reliability and creativity. Some people have two "mother" tongues. But rarely more than that... ;-)
