Add DeepL as a machine translation option in ContentTranslation

  • Problem: Content translation allows pre-filling the text using machine translation provided by either Google Translate or Yandex Translate. This is better than nothing, but the quality of their translations is poor.
  • Proposed solution: Add DeepL ( as a machine translation option. In my experience their output is much better than the other two, although they only support 24 languages. Probably make it the default for the supported languages, too. Human review is still required, but I think this will reduce the effort spent on fixing boring things, e.g. correcting the pronouns in languages with gendered nouns.
  • Who would benefit: Translators to/from 24 languages
  • More comments: (I've mostly used it when translating English to Polish, also occasionally for various languages to English, and their result was the best almost every time I tried comparing with the other websites.)
