Can I limit my maximum monthly costs (cost control)?
Yes, our DeepL API plan offers you the option to set a limit on the number of characters that you can translate per month and thereby control your maximum monthly costs. You only need to activate Cost Control in your DeepL account, under Usage.
To do so:
- Click Change cost control settings in the section Current cost
- Tick the checkbox Activate cost control
- Enter the maximum cost amount
- Click on Save to save the changes
Your new cost control limit is applied immediately.
Once you have reached your limit, DeepL Pro will not process any further translation requests until the end of the billing period. If you would like to translate more, you can make further changes at any time.
Every time your Cost Control limit is raised, you will receive a notification email for security reasons. If you receive such a notification, but you did not raise your Cost Control limit, we highly suggest you reset your authentication key and the password to your DeepL account as soon as possible.
