I have just decided to try out DeepL Pro on a suitable project, have the API key code, but can't find any directions for applying it. I found out from the OmegaT forum on SourceForge Net that it goes in the SVN (/trunk, rev. 10306), but where on earth is that?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OmegaT version 4.1.5, update 2.

It doesn't work anymore Oct 2, 2018

This has been discussed on the Yahoo group. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/OmegaT/conversations/messages
Apparently Deepl found a way to stop people from using this for free.

DeepL Pro API Oct 2, 2018

Yes, it's paid for (or will be at the end of the month) and ready to go.
I find the Yahoo forum thread layout difficult to follow, so am hoping for advice here.

How to configure the DeepL Pro key Code? Oct 3, 2018

Thank you Didier. One step closer.

Your directions took me to Library > Preferences > OmegaT > omegat.prefs (on my iMac)

Here I found
ext_tmx_match_template
allow_microsoft_translate false /allow_microsoft_translate
wf_stopOnAlternativeTranslation false /wf_stopOnAlternativeTranslation
wf_convertNumbers true /wf_convertNumbers
allow_apertium_translate false /allow_apertium_translate

I removed the > < characters. No mention of DeepL

The question still remains of how and where to apply the key code.

Why don't you simply go to Preferences in the menu?

Here I found
ext_tmx_match_template
allow_microsoft_translate false /allow_microsoft_translate
wf_stopOnAlternativeTranslation false /wf_stopOnAlternativeTranslation
wf_convertNumbers true /wf_convertNumbers
allow_apertium_translate false /allow_apertium_translate

Even if you wanted to edit a file, omegat.prefs is not the right one.

In the main menu, go to Preferences (on the Mac, Preferences are in the main menu), and follow the path I gave you.

Not 'options' but 'OmegaT', then 'preferences', then 'Machine Translate' Oct 3, 2018

Thank you very much Didier.
Now much clearer to find. And the process couldn't be simpler.
Applying the Google Translate key years ago was a nightmare by comparison!

Can't find Deepl on the list of machine translations Nov 29, 2018

EDIT: I was just posting this and found the answer: Deepl integration is not available except on the beta version (v 4.1.5). Unfortunately, because my client's corporate policy does not let them install any beta software on company computers, so I won't be able to use OmegaT with Deepl at work...

I'm staring at the Main Menu -> Options -> Automatic translation-> (list of MTs: Belazar, MyMemory (machine), Google Translate, Yandex, Apertium, MyMemory (human) and Microsoft Translator). Deepl is not one of them... Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Thanks,
John

OmegaT 4 is not really beta Nov 30, 2018

OmegaT 4 is not really beta. (It's not labelled "beta" on omegat.org, only "Latest".)

It is actually generally a least as stable as 3.6.

The main difference (as far as stability is concerned) is that the manual is not up to date.

So, tell your client OmegaT is not a beta.
