If you use translation tools such as “Deepl” in a professional environment, you must always ensure that personal data or other sensitive information is removed before the text to be translated is inserted. Only then can it be ensured that no confidential information is processed by the provider.
Alternatively, the Cologne-based company also offers a paid pro version of its service. This version promises that entered texts will not be used to improve the product and therefore will not be saved.
“When using DeepL Pro, the texts you submit and their translations are never saved and are only used to the extent that this is necessary for the creation of the translation. When using DeepL Pro, we do not use your texts to improve the quality of our services. ”
As is so often the case, the typical scenario between free and paid services is also reflected here. Anyone who uses free services on the Internet usually pays with their personal data. But even when using the paid version, you should make sure that personal data is not simply translated.
