Deepl Translate TYPO3 Extension

By Tintu Mathew on October 23, 2019

This extension provides option to translate content elements and tca record fields to desired language(supported by deepl). As a fallback, Google translate option is also provided as they provide support for many languages that deepl isn’t providing. For both Deepl translate and Google translate, there are two modes-normal and autodetect, where the later autodetects source language and translates it to the desired language.
