DeepL is undoubtedly one of the most popular translation portals on the market. Now the company has responded to the current influx of refugees from Ukraine by adding Ukrainian to its portfolio.
New language in record time
The Russian war of aggression against Ukraine has been going on for almost seven months now. The political consequences of it all could hardly be more severe. In addition to record inflation and rising energy prices, some people are forgetting the human suffering associated with the war in the east. Every day we receive new refugees who want to flee from the embattled areas. Since they had to leave their country overnight, there are of course language barriers that are difficult to overcome. But this is where DeepL comes in.
To help the Ukrainians, the portal has now included the language of the largest country in Europe in terms of area. According to the portal, the reason behind this is the immense demand from users. More and more wanted to access Ukrainian, but simply did not find the language on DeepL. For this reason, the company stepped up its efforts and worked at full speed to include the language in its own offering. Now the company is done with this project.
DeepL overcomes language barriers
However, the Cologne-based parent company DeepL SE emphasizes that despite the short time in which they implemented the new language, the quality is also right. For example, the AI from DeepL should be able to recognize even the most subtle linguistic differences. In addition, the work is not yet finished. As with the other existing languages, regular updates are also planned. The inclusion of the Ukrainian language was obviously a project close to DeepL’s heart. After all, the company emphasizes that it primarily wants to help the refugees who have now had to leave their country. With the help of the app (iOS/Android) or the Web client from DeepL, they can finally overcome language barriers.
Nearly 30 languages on offer
As a result, the service is growing and thriving. Finally, with Ukrainian, the now 29th language has found its way into the translation portal made in Germany. But the company, founded in 2017, does not only want to score with a large selection. Rather, it should be the precise translation that makes DeepL. Behind this is a sophisticated AI, which, according to the company, should ensure the most precise machine translation on the market.
