Langzy adds support for Japanese and Chinese via DeepL

Germany-based DeepL recently added support for Japanese and Chinese. Starting today, you can access these DeepL languages through Langzy too.

DeepL, the Germany-based machine translation (MT) service, just added support for Japanese and Chinese. This comes on top of English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Dutch, Polish, and Russian, bringing the number of languages DeepL supports to 11.

With Japanese and Chinese, DeepL for the first time ventures outside its original scope of major European languages.

The company has always prided itself on the outstanding quality of its translations. According to DeepL’s own evaluation, the new language combinations are no exception. In comparison with a number of other well-known services, human evaluators have reportedly preferred DeepL’s translations by a significant margin in a blind test.

Our aim with Langzy is to provide easy and hassle-free access to a selection of outstanding machine translation services. As of today, DeepL’s two new languages are also available through Langzy’s interface. When you choose a combination like Chinese to English, DeepL is no longer greyed out among the MT providers:

Selecting DeepL to translate into Chinese

Do you want to find out how DeepL’s translations compare to other services like Google, Niutrans or Kawamura NMT for your own content? In Langzy you can easily translate the same text by just selecting a different MT engine from the list.
