German SIG #Germany SITE CITE - New Free translation website: DeepL Translator #germany
Most of us need machine help to understand text written in other
languages. For a long time Google's translation service at:
https://translate.google.co.uk/ has dominated. While OK for
individual words or short phrases, it also produced laughable results
- especially on longer text.
I have just been guided to a new free translation service which I
It has 2 parts:
1. DeepL Translator for machine translation - as in other services
you enter text in one language and have its translation in a
selection of other languages in the adjacent window.
2. Linguee database of human translations - a vast dictionary
DeeplL sadly, at this stage, lacks Hebrew which Google *** does ** offer.

*** Moderator Note: I tested DeepL Translator with one personal letter
from Germany. I found the DeepL translation a bit more skillful atinterpreting idiomatic phrases and producing a similar English idiom.
