DeepL Translator is now available for Android
When DeepL Translator was launched in 2017, it promised to deliver more human-like translations than competing services such as Google Translate Where Microsoft Translate. The service has been available for Windows, Mac, iOS, and as a web version for some time, and now it’s also available for Android.
DeepL Translate is available on Google Play for Android devices running Android 8.0 or later. The app is free and supports both light and dark mode, which it automatically applies based on the system preset. The translation service has come a long way since its humble beginnings. It is now able to translate 23 languages:
Bulgarian, Chinese (Simplified), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English (American), English (British), Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Portuguese (Brazilian ) ), Romanian, Russian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish
The Android version is powered by the same translation engine as the company’s other products. The interface is split into two fields when you launch the app. The upper part accepts user input, either manually or by pasting, and the lower part displays the translation. The input language is detected automatically, but you can change the output language to any of the supported languages.
Other than that, there is an option to listen to the original text or the translated text using text-to-speech, and options to copy the translation to clipboard or share it. Translations require an active internet connection. The translation speed is fast and the output quality is good.
The developers are already working on new features and improvements. The app is quite basic and while it is suitable for many purposes, it lacks options offered by other translation apps.
Google Translate supports microphone and camera input, keeps track of translation history, and supports downloading languages to the local device.
However, although the initial version of the application Deepl Translate either basic, it offers the speed and quality of translations. If you only need translations for supported languages, this is a great option for translating content on Android devices and on the go.
