About DeepL Write
DeepL Write is an AI writing tool that can improve your written communication with just one click. It will help you with your writing by checking the grammar, punctuation, and style as well as providing suggestions and alternative phrasing.
DeepL Write is available at DeepL.com/write. Currently, DeepL Write isn't available on the other platforms.
Please note that this product is a Beta version, and we are continuously working on improving it.
Currently, the tool supports the following languages:
- English (UK and US)
More languages will follow in the future.
Using DeepL Write
You can enter your text in the left-hand text area. DeepL Write will then check it and provide you with an improved version of your text in the right-hand text area. The language of your writing will be detected automatically, but you can also change it via the language selector above the left-hand text area.
The changes done by DeepL Write will be marked in green in the right-hand text area. You also have the option to choose alternative phrasing for either single words or whole sentences.
To select an alternative phrasing, click on the word you'd like to change. Next to Alternatives, click on the Words icon to see other suggestions for the selected word. To view alternatives for the whole sentence, click on the Entire sentences icon .
To undo changes in the rewritten version of your text, click on the Undo icon over the changed sentence.
Similarly to the web translator, you can also replace your original text with the rewritten version by clicking on the Switch sides icon between the text areas.
DeepL Write also allows you to rewrite into another variety of the same language. Currently this feature is only supported for British English and American English. To do so, enter a text in the left-hand text area. Via the language selector above this area, select the variety you want to rewrite into. DeepL Write will then rewrite your text according to the conventions of the selected variety.
You can also listen to your writing and the rewritten version by clicking on the Speaker icon at the bottom of the text areas.
If you want to copy your rewritten text, click on the Copy icon at the bottom of the right-hand text area.
Please note that features of DeepL Translator, such as the glossary or the formal/informal feature are not available for DeepL Write.
