Support » Plugin: DeepL Pro API translation plugin » Scope of automated translation (pre-installation question!)

  • Resolved europeandiversity


    Before I install the DeepL Plugin, I need guidance on what it COULD do once installed. I have a particular legacy blog (and translation issue) that I need to fix asap.

    PAST to CURRENT situation

    My old blog used to be mixed-lingual DE-EN in the way that most articles only appeared in ONE of the two languages. The (outdated) mqtranslate plugin made sure that if you were browing the English blog (english menu etc.), German articles would be displayed where there was no English translation/version and vice versa. As the plugin is no longer supported (and only runs up to WP 4.3), I must replace it asap.

    I am quite satisfied with DeepL and consider to use it for the blog.

    QUESTION about display configuration

    Can I configure DeepL also in the way that it would display ‘the other’ language if a translation is not available?

    QUESTION about AUTOMATED translations

    The other option would be to automatically create translations (for headlines and/or texts) where there are currently none – in both directions. The question is if the plugin can handle all three different situations
    – Articles in English where German is missing –> create German translations
    – Articles in German where English is missing –> create English translations
    – Articles where we already have both languages –> do nothing

    Can anyone help with either of the two questions?

    I’m curious to which multi lingual solution you chose to migrate to, and how I can adapt the plugin to work with it.

    As for the core of your question, this plugin, in the free version, does not handle post creation or (strictly speaking) management of multi languages articles. You have to create the posts, paste the content, and ask for translation.

    Some of your issues might be resolved by using the premium version of this plugin which is currently undergoing rewriting and will be published in the next few weeks on

    Still interested to know which multi lingual articles management solution you chose.
