Alternate translation add-on for Google Sheets. You can store deepl api key in your sheet and use it to improve private translations
DeepL for Google Sheets is an unofficial plugin for Google® spreadsheets that allows you to translate any text within a cell into 9 different languages: Spanish, English, German, French, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Polish and Russian.
Although the Google tool currently has a text translation function (GOOGLETRANSLATE), DeepL is an exceptional alternative that generates natural and organic texts from texts in other languages.
Another great advantage of using DeepL is the security of your data, ensuring that translated texts are immediately deleted after the translation is complete and the connection to your servers is encrypted. Therefore, they will not be used for any purpose other than your translation. DeepL is a German company that complies with European GDPR standards.
Important: In order to use this add-on, you must open a DeepL API account that generates a necessary key for you to translate your tables. Without the key, you will not be able to use this add-on. DeepL API accounts are fee-paying and will charge you a minimum monthly fee for character translation. Once the initial limit is exceeded, you will be charged a surcharge for the additional use of translated characters.
Instructions for use: once you have opened the DeepL API account and installed the add-on, you must follow the steps below:
1. You will be asked for the necessary permissions in your google account to start using it.
2. You will have to enter the API key generated in DeepL in the menu options - see official add-on page for more information -.
3. You can now use the special function by clicking on a cell in your table and entering the following function:
@text = cell or text to be translated
@lang_origin = two-character original language code. You can leave it blank for automatic detection.
@lang_destination = two-character code of the language into which the text will be translated. To date, it can only be one of the following: "en", "es", "fr", "de", "it", "pt", "pl", "nl" and "ru".
Both the source and target languages can be text values or references to other cells.
=We are going to translate a portion of the text into English"; "es"; "en");
