DeepL does not work correctly in Déjà Vu

Check that Déjà Vu is correctly configured to use DeepL Pro

You must enable DeepL Pro in each project in which you want to use it. You can do this for individual languages, or for all languages, using the Project Properties dialog window:

  1. Open the Project Properties dialog.
  2. Select the Machine Translation tab.
  3. Select a language from the Target Language drop-down box.
  4. Click on Add....
  5. Select DeepL from the list of Machine Translation providers.
  6. Enter your DeepL Pro API key, or accept the default shown if it is correct.

You can also specify a default DeepL Pro key to use in Déjà Vu's general options, which is what Déjà Vu will use unless you specify a different one in a project:

  1. Access the menu option File>Options.
  2. Select the Machine Translation tab.
  3. Click on DeepL Options....
  4. Type in your DeepL Pro API key in the textbox labelled API key.

This process (performed for Google Translate) is demonstrated in one of our videos.

Check you DeepL Pro API Key

Check that the key is typed correctly

Make sure that the API key you were given by DeepL was typed correctly into Déjà Vu X3. It is better to copy the key and then paste it into the appropriate textbox in Déjà Vu X3, to ensure that it is spelled correctly. You should also make sure that there are no preceding or trailing spaces; it is possible that, when you copy and then paste the API key, a space is added. This would make it not work.

Check the validity of the API key

You can use the textbox below, by entering your DeepL Pro API key and clicking Enter, to check its validity. When you do, a simple request will be sent directly to DeepL Pro, using the API key you have entered.

You will see the response from DeepL, including error messages or warnings if there are any.

If you have had trouble getting DeepL Pro in Déjà Vu X3, copy the result and send it to Atril Support.
