Translating from German to French is different from case to case depending on several factors. A French word could have one translation in one region and a different meaning in another area. There can be more than one correct French translation of a German word, as words can have varying interpretations conditional of what context they are put into. A technical French translation may vary strongly from a French medical translation, which is why the German-French dictionary includes several different interpretations.
