DeepL is paid service providing good machine translation for a few languages. You need to purchase DeepL API subscription or you can use legacy DeepL Pro (classic) plan.

API URL to use with the DeepL service. At the time of writing, there is the v1 API as well as a free and a paid version of the v2 API.

https://api.deepl.com/v2/ (default in Weblate)

Is meant for API usage on the paid plan, and the subscription is usage-based.

https://api-free.deepl.com/v2/

Is meant for API usage on the free plan, and the subscription is usage-based.

https://api.deepl.com/v1/

Is meant for CAT tools and is usable with a per-user subscription.

Previously Weblate was classified as a CAT tool by DeepL, so it was supposed to use the v1 API, but now is supposed to use the v2 API. Therefore it defaults to v2, and you can change it to v1 in case you have an existing CAT subscription and want Weblate to use that.

The easiest way to find out which one to use is to open an URL like the following in your browser:

https://api.deepl.com/v2/translate?text=Hello&target_lang=FR&auth_key=XXX

Replace the XXX with your auth_key. If you receive a JSON object which contains « Bonjour », you have the correct URL; if not, try the other three.

Weblate supports DeepL formality, it will choose matching one based on the language (for example, there is de@formal and de@informal).

The service automatically uses Glossaire, see Glossaries in automatic suggestion.

# Copyright © Michal Čihař <michal@weblate.org>
#
# SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-3.0-or-later

"""Machine translation example."""

import dictionary  # type: ignore[import-not-found]

from weblate.machinery.base import DownloadTranslations, MachineTranslation


class SampleTranslation(MachineTranslation):
    """Sample machine translation interface."""

    name = "Sample"

    def download_languages(self):
        """Return list of languages your machine translation supports."""
        return {"cs"}

    def download_translations(
        self,
        source,
        language,
        text: str,
        unit,
        user,
        threshold: int = 75,
    ) -> DownloadTranslations:
        """Return tuple with translations."""
        for t in dictionary.translate(text):
            yield {"text": t, "quality": 100, "service": self.name, "source": text}

You can list your own class in WEBLATE_MACHINERY and Weblate will start using that.
