While at the Wordfast Forward Conference, many asked for DeepL integration in their CAT tool.
At the moment of this post, it works perfectly in Wordfast Anywhere.

If you want to learn more about DeepL or subscribe to the service or connect it to WFA or see it perform, you can watch the video I created about it here:

Is it ready in your CAT tool?
Connecting it should be very similar to the method described in the video.

Hope this helps 😊

My bests to all!

WordFast Pro 5 and DeepL Aug 23


When can we expect Wordfast pro 5 to incorporate DeepL?

Thank you for your help.

Good question Aug 23

Hi Alex,

Thank you for raising this. It's something that was asked at the Conference.
I'm sure this will not take too long now.
I've asked Wordfast so there should be an answer on this forum pretty soon.

In the meantime if you absolutely need to work with DeepL, you have a few options still:
1_ Connect DeepL to Wordfast Anywhere (see my video about it)
2_ Export a Txlf or txml from Wordfast Pro 5
3_ Import the txlf in WFA
4_ Prestranslate with DeepL MT
5_ Export pretranslated txlf and import back in WFP5

That's heavy (15 mins turnaround).

You still have the option to connect you WFP5 TM to WFA (see my video) and start work from WFA (with DeepL connected) this will nake your TM grow alll the same.

These options are not the best and are only workarounds until the option exists in WFP5.

Hope this helps.

Alternatively Aug 23

Alternatively you could just trash your CAT tool, get Deepl to do the translation by itself, copy/paste it into a Word document, and then do what you always have to do with a Deepl translation: completely check it, correct its many errors, and more or less rewrite the whole thing.

5.7 Aug 23

DeepL integration is scheduled for version 5.7.

Version 5.6 is currently being beta tested and might be released as early as September.

I don't expect 5.7 to be ready for beta testing until October or November.
