1. Installing the Connector

This connector is available by default and you do not need to install it.

2. Requirements

You can use this connector with both, a DeepL API Free or DeepL API Pro account. Please note that your API URL might change depending on your account.

3. Configuration

To test your settings, simply click on the Test connection button.

If you want to make use of this connector in a client’s side-by-side translation helper, you need to explicitly activate this connector by checking the respective checkbox (if available).

DeepL also supports glossaries. These have to be created manually and you may use them with this connector. If activated, the connector matches glossaries based on their language. Hence, you can only use one glossary per language.

If you have multiple glossaires per language, this connector will make use of the first it obtains.

3.2. Languages

DeepL uses standard language codes. Yet, you projects may use country-language codes (e.g. en-UK). Therefore, it is necessary to map your project (country-)language codes to DeepL language codes.

3.3. Short-Term Caching

To avoid repetetive translations in a single document, you can activate short term caching.

Regular Expressions
Figure 3. Regular Expressions

This feature will avoid translating identical phrases multiple times in a single document. This feature only covers plain text content.

3.4. Excluding non-translatable content

You can remove certain text patterns from translation, e.g. telephone numbers or emails. To make use of this, you can provide a list of regular expressions.

Regular expressions can be (very) tricky, so make sure you test them.
