DeepL Pro

The DeepL translator is an online machine translation service. Apps are available for Windows, MacOS, iOS and Android. The information on this website gives you a first impression of the service's performance. The text you are reading has been translated from German into English with the help of DeepL without any further editing.

Currently, the service supports German, British English, American English, French, Italian and 26 other languages.

In the media release of 18 December 2019 (German only) on the use of DeepL in the Swiss Federal Administration, you will find a link to a detailed test report.

Offer for employees

The Central IT of the University of Zurich, in collaboration with the SWITCH Foundation, provides low-cost access to the translation service DeepL Pro Starter.

Advantages of DeepL Pro Starter compared to DeepL Free:

  • Data protection: DeepL Pro does not save your texts in order to optimise machine learning.
  • Capacity: You can have 5 (instead of 3) documents of 10 Mb each (instead of 5 Mb) translated per month.
  • Convenience: you can store up to 5000 terms (instead of 10) in your DeepL glossary to always get certain words in your preferred translation or to exclude them from automatic translation.

Please note:  The API for DeepL Pro is not included in the package described above.


If you subscribe to DeepL Pro Starter via the method described here, your cost centre will be charged CHF 5 per month.

If you license DeepL Pro Starter privately, you pay 8.90 CHF (for monthly payment). [As of May 2023]
