Can I upload glossaries?
For free users:
No, you cannot upload glossaries. If you are using the free version of DeepL Translator, you can manually create your own glossary and add up to 10 entries.
For DeepL Pro Starter subscribers:
No, you cannot upload glossaries. With your DeepL Pro Starter subscription, you can manually create your own glossary and add as many entries as you wish.
For DeepL Pro Advanced and Ultimate subscribers:
Yes, you can upload glossaries in the web translator and the DeepL for Windows / Mac app.
With your DeepL Pro Advanced or DeepL Pro Ultimate subscription, you can create glossaries manually or upload your existing glossaries via CSV file. You will find both options on the bar located at the top of the glossary window.
It is possible to upload a CSV file which includes a glossary for one language pair (e.g., English into German) or a glossary for several language pairs (e.g., English into Spanish and English into French).
If your file includes a glossary for one language pair (e.g., EN->DE), please select your CSV file with two columns (e.g., artist,Maler) and specify the language pair of your glossary in the Upload Glossary window. A separator should be detected automatically. You can also choose the separator manually if needed. Please click on Upload.
If your file includes a glossary for several language pairs, please add the source language label and the target language label after the glossary entries in the following order: the term in the source language, the term in the target language, the source language, the target language. Here is an example of a glossary including entries for two language pairs (English into Spanish and English into French):
Please select your CSV file with these four columns and click on Upload. Since you have specified the corresponding language pair for every glossary entry in your file, you should not choose the language pair in the Upload Glossary window and can ignore this. A separator should be detected automatically. You can also choose a separator manually if needed.
When uploading your glossary, please keep in mind the following formatting guidelines:
- Your file should be UTF-8 encoded (saved as CSV UTF-8 (comma delimited) (*.csv)).
- The first row of the CSV file should start with the first entry (e.g., artist,Maler or translate,traducir,EN,ES).
- Your file should not include any comments.
- Your file can include up to 5000 entries.
- Your file should include only one entry per each source text (no duplicates are allowed).
