DeepL Translator is a neural machine translation service launched in August 2017 and owned by DeepL SE, based in Cologne.
The translating system was first developed within Linguee and launched as entity DeepL. It initially offered translations between seven European languages and was gradually expanded to support 24 languages with 552 language pairs. Additionally, approximations of language equivalence are proposed among all of those languages, using a two-step process via an English pivot.
The translator is offered for free with limitations, which can be removed with a paid subscription. The company also licenses its translation application programming interface.
