DeepL, the best alternative to the Google translator, already has application for Windows and macOS: this is how it works

DeepL is one of the best translators (if not the best) we can find on the net. The main reason is that it is one of the few able to analyze the text through neural convolution networks, instead of the concurrent neural networks that it uses, for example, Google Translator. Thanks to this technology and the use of its own multi-language dictionary, Linguee, DeepL offers quite good results, analyzing the context of the text to be translated accurately.

To date, it was necessary to use the DeepL website to achieve our translation purpose, but since yesterday the company has program for Windows and macOS, completely free though, yes, still in beta. However, we have been able to prove it, and we already anticipate that the operation is as expected, all good.

This is how the DeepL program works


Operation in Windows It is identical. We copy text twice and the translator does his job.

In our case, we have tested DeepL on a Macbook, but the version for Windows It is identical at the operating level. The first thing is to download it from the DeepL page, and install it on our computer. Interface level it’s a short program, but that fulfills its mission.


We find a first box in which we must enter the text to be translated, and a box just below where that translation will be shown. So far, one might think that the DeepL program is nothing more than quick access to the service, but the good news comes at the level of integration with the system.


DeepL is set to that, by pressing Ctrl + C (or ⌘C in macOS), the text is automatically pasted and translated into the program, so it is not necessary to copy the text, open the interface and copy it, it is done automatically. In fact, you can have the program closed, and it will open on its own when performing this action.

Like the web, the main limitation we find with DeepL is that it only has support for eight languages, specifically, they are the ones listed below.

  • Spanish
  • English
  • German
  • Portuguese
  • Italian
  • Dutch
  • Polish
  • Russian


However, Translation accuracy is still excellent, and like our Xataka colleagues, we notice that of better quality than the one made by Google Translator.

As we anticipated, the program is still in beta, but its operation is more than correct, and we recommend having it installed for quick translations. Like any translator, it is subject to errors, but it remains one of the most accurate tools when it comes to achieving this task.
