How can I use DeepL Pro in Trados Studio 2017 or higher?
- In order to start, you must have purchased a DeepL Pro subscription. If you haven’t, please click here. Also, you need to have Trados Studio 2017 or higher installed with an active license. You will need your personal Authentication Key to use DeepL Pro with Trados Studio. This key can be found on your DeepL Pro Account page.
- Open the SDL AppStore and log into your account.
Search for "DeepL" and select the "DeepL Translation Provider" plug-in.
Click "Download," select the plug-in, save the file, and open the file, once downloaded. Follow the steps in the on-screen wizard in order to complete the installation.
- There are several ways to use the DeepL Pro plug-in: you can pre-translate automatically, you can translate single files, or you can create a new project. In the following, we describe how to set up a project without pre-translation. (Please refer to the Trados Studio support page to find out more about automated translation.)
Run Trados Studio and create a new project. Once you arrive at the "Translation Memory and Automated Translation" page, select "Use…" and choose "DeepL MT Translation Provider" from the list.
⇨ Enter your Authentication Key. (This may be referred to as an "API Key"). Click “OK.”
⇨ Finish creating the project.
⇨ Open the translation file and start translating with DeepL Pro.
Located above the first segment to translate, the "Translation Results" window will show the automatic translations from DeepL, which you can use and edit directly in the target language segment.
- As soon as you move to the next open segment, the plug-in will quickly and automatically suggest a translation in the "Translation Results" window.
These translations will be saved in your translation memories for future use.
You can also consult the RWS Community page for the DeepL MT Provider for further information about how the plug-in works.
Important: Should you encounter difficulties when using DeepL Pro with Trados Studio, please make sure that your plug-in is up to date. The latest version of the DeepL plug-in will be available for download on the SDL AppStore.
