DeepL in 2022: A look back at a memorable year
2022 was a big year here at DeepL! We added new languages to the translator, released new products and features, expanded our dedicated team—and even met up as a company for the first time in years. It’s been an exciting time, and we’d like to look back on what made this year so special. New languages Back in May, we released Turkish and Indonesian, expanding usage of the translator to millions more users worldwide. In September, we released our most requested language of the year—Ukrainian—with the hope of easing communication challenges for those relocating abroad.
As always, we tested each language release thoroughly to ensure translation accuracy reached DeepL’s high standards. New products and features First off, 2022 brought the release of the Android mobile app. Android users can now translate on the go in 29 languages.
We also released not one, but two browser extensions: DeepL for Chrome and DeepL for Microsoft Edge. These extensions allow users to translate snippets of web pages or even their own emails as they write them—all without leaving their browser. DeepL Pro subscribers can utilize full-page translation with the new extensions.
Finally, we expanded options on our glossary feature, adding 5 new language pairs, including English<>Japanese, English<>Italian, English<>Polish, English<>Dutch, and German<>French. We also introduced shared glossary, allowing users to share their glossary entries with team members to keep company communication consistent.
DeepL Pro subscriptions are now available in Mexico and Singapore, enabling more users to access unlimited translation, maximum data security, and more.
We also saw unparalleled success in Japan, with our CEO and founder Jarek Kutylowski receiving a very warm welcome at the Global Management Forum after his talk on how DeepL is helping Japanese companies go global through AI translation.
Growing our team
We added more team members than ever before in 2022! For the first time since 2019, we brought our team together for an offsite to build collaboration, celebrate successes, and plan for the future.
We’d like to thank our loyal users for an incredible (and inspiring) year—stay tuned for more exciting news coming up in early 2023.
