      Note about deepl: according to their EULA they collect all what you type there and use it for training their algorithm. They are much smaller that Google and co, what makes me thinking that your data could be more “visible” in the training results.

      The service as such is good, though.

        I think this is only the case with the free version. Source: I worked with some big German companies which wanted to have an autotranslate function for their software. DeepL was the top choice, because the quality is very good and the data protection agreements for the paid service left no questions.

          Most probably this is correct. One can say the same about most enterprise targeting offers, for example by Microsoft.

          People who consider it for private usage should make decisions knowing such details.

        This isn’t the case for some specific corporate contract for the pro version. But, it’s not publicly available.

      They have total different use cases. DeepL is a translator, language tool checks for style and grammar.

      I use both frequently and both do a very good job. I have a prime membership of language tool and I like it. Both are German companies and operate under GDPR.

      It’s not bad at all, and multilingual. I like it as I can write in multiple language making less mistakes.
