Plugin Description:

This plugin allows translation of GetSimple CMS pages using the DeepL translation API.
It requires the i18n plugin.

The plugin creates new, machine-translated pages from the Edit page, according to the i18n page structure.

Attention: A DeepL Developer API account is required: See here, which has a monthly fee of currently 5.49 $ or 4.99 €.


  • Choose which fields you want to have translated, which html/xml tags will contain text not to translate, and which expressions and words shall never be translated
  • exclude placeholders {% xxx %}, (% xxx %), and %xxx% from translation
  • configure a list of target languages and their respective slug extensions
  • supports all target languages offered by DeepL (source language is always auto-detected).

Supported Languages
This plugin works with all languages provided by DeepL.
As of 2020-10-25, DeepL supports the following languages:
English (British)
English (American)
Portuguese (European)
Portuguese (Brazilian)

When new languages will be added by DeepL, simply open the plugin configuration page once and the additional language will become available.

When you are on the Edit page, you can either choose "DeepL Translate" from the options menu or "DeepL Translate Page" from the sidebar.

A dialog popup window will appear.

From the pulldown menu, choose the language you want the page to be translated to (You had previously defined the available selection in the plugin configuration) . The resulting page slug will be displayed, and you can choose whether you want to have a counter added to the slug in case the target language page already exists. Otherwise, an existing page will be overwritten.
After this, press "Translate".

A new machine-translated page will be created and saved, with all desired fields translated, and it will be presented in the Edit page.
Review and improve the translated content and all fields carefully and save again.

Install Instructions:

Unzip the zip file and upload the contents to the plugin directory.
Activate the plugin.

Then go to the Plugins Page and choose "Configure DeepL Translation" from the sidebar.
At first, you will have to enter the DeepL authenthication key you got with your DeepL API account and click "Save Settings".

After this, you will see all available languages, and you can configure all translation parameters according to your needs.
You should pay special attention to the slug configuration, as these shall reflect your multilanguage website slug structure.

After saving again, the plugin is ready for use.

This plugin is unofficial and is not provided by DeepL, and there are no relations or dependencies to DeepL.
