      It may not have as many languages in store, but the languages available are translated ridiculously well. It always feels like natural language out-of-the box and even handles old deprecated words or expressions really well!

      RemovedUser With Google Translate, we can translate any language to any language. Apertium only allows the translation of specific languages to other specific ones. Eg.: Portuguese to only Catalan, Spanish and Galician, but not English, French or German like Google Translate does.

      riveravaldez GPLed, free-libre open-source software. So, not ending in the same problems as with Google (which is the case for DeepL).

      It completes Google Translate, by giving contextualised examples in English. The only limitation is that it only translates into English.
