I'm sorry, but I fail to see how that answers why two different verbs are used in French. An explanation about English usage does not automatically transposes itself to another language.

comment What is “gran” in French?
@Tomas Actually, it kind of is about translation, whether you're using Google Translate for it or not. You're basically asking how it works, why it gives you usage examples of "gran" when that word does not exist in French. And that comes around to translation, or more precisely, lack thereof. And then when you ask for usage, it fetches all its instances of that particular non-translation.

Google Translate uses what Google does best: an algorithm. It's stupid machine translation, but they have managed to make a really good one, especially in French-English. But it remains machine translation and you should always be wary of it and double check the results.
