Can I adjust my translations to suit the context?
Yes. Whether you're a free user or DeepL Pro subscriber, you can easily change translations to fit your needs by selecting alternative words and phrases.
For single words and sentences, several suggestions might be displayed under Alternatives. If you prefer one of these alternative translations, just click on it, and it will substitute the initial translation.
You can also tailor the translation of each word individually. To do so, simply click on the word you’d like to change. Then a drop-down list with different alternatives will appear. You can scroll down to see all the options and choose the best fitting one. Your translation will be automatically adjusted.
In case you would like to use that alternative in the future, you can also save it as a rule to the glossary. You can learn more about the glossary feature here.
Please keep in mind that the use of alternatives can sometimes change the sentence structure of your translation. This means that adjustments later in the text might be replaced if you make changes in the preceding text.
Alternatives displayed below the translation are available for text translation on the web translator, desktop apps, and mobile apps.
Alternatives displayed in the drop-down list are available for text translation on the web translator and desktop apps. Please note that alternatives displayed in the drop-down list are not supported when translating into Chinese.
