DeepL launches in-house PDF translation for improved security and efficiency

We’re happy to announce an important upgrade to our translation services. From now on, DeepL will handle all PDF translations in-house, without the help of third parties, using our privately operated servers based in Europe.  

This change comes in response to product feedback and our goal of providing you with the best possible translations while maintaining the highest security standards. By bringing the PDF translation process in-house, we’re able to do just that.  

When it comes to translating whole PDF files, you have two options: 

1. Translation of whole PDF files, keeping the formatting in place  

2. Translation of text extracted from PDF files without retaining the formatting  

Going forward, we’ll translate your PDFs—regardless of your account type or location—with the highest security standards on our European servers. And as always, you can expect DeepL’s translations to be consistently accurate and reliable.

Note: Whole PDF translation is possible using the web translator, DeepL API, and the DeepL desktop apps
