Exciting news! GT4T now fully supports DeepL, including the alternative translation feature. Works in all applications. No need to learn. Just select some text anywhere and press Ctrl+j and then the selection is replaced by translation.
Go to the setup screen->Machine translation->Engine dropdown
Pick ‘DeepL translator’ and there you go. (See Pic 1)
If you choose ‘Show alternative translations’ (Pic 2). Select some source text and click Ctrl+j, you get a popup of alternative translations! Press a corresponding number or use UP/Down arrow and then Enter to replace with that translation.
If you choose ‘No preview’ under ‘Preview pop’, you can still access the alternative translations feature by hitting “CTRL+WIN+j”, with “CTR+J” assigned to replacing with translation.
Yes, GT4T works in all Windows-based apps. Select a word, a phrase or a sentence anywhere and press ctrl+j, your selection is replaced by translation from DeepL.
DeepL works all CAT tools too. It works with CTRL+ALT+j (translating current segment), CTRL+ALT+k (translating next segment).
GT4T is the correct use of MT. You choose which part of a sentence to be sent to MT. With GT4T, MT is just your best reference tool.
