Is there a way to read translations when translating into languages that don't use the Latin alphabet?
Yes, if you translate into a language that uses a non-Latin alphabet you cannot read, e.g., the Cyrillic alphabet or Chinese characters, you can view the transliteration of the translation in our DeepL for Android app.
The characters of your translation will be transcribed into the corresponding letters or syllables of the Latin script.
This feature will help you read your translations for the following languages: Bulgarian, Chinese, Greek, Japanese, and Russian.
Please note that you might now be missing the transliteration feature from your DeepL for Android app. That’s only because the feature is brand new. We’ll be releasing it gradually for all our users.
It's also not available for our DeepL for iOS app, the web translator, the browser extensions, and desktop apps at the moment.
The transliteration of your translated text will be displayed below your translation. You might need to minimize your on-screen keyboard to view your translation in the Latin alphabet.
For longer texts, the transliteration will not be displayed automatically. To view it, click on the Show in Latin alphabet link.
You can also close it, by clicking on the Hide this variant link that will appear instead of the Show in Latin alphabet link.
Please note that only the translated text can be displayed in the Latin alphabet too, not the source text.
