How to generate DeepL API key

In order to use the API, you will need to get an API key.

DeepL offers free API access that allows you to translate up to 500,000 characters per month for free.

If you need more than that, you can purchase a DeepL API Pro subscription and it costs 4.99€ + usage fees.

Both packages that contain API access are listed under For Developers → DeepL API: https://www.deepl.com/pro.html#developer

DeepL subscriptions

Whichever packet you want to go ahead with, you will first be asked to create an account, where you will have to enter your personal details and card number.
In the case of the free version, the card will not be used, but you need to specify it as a protection against multiple registrations.

DeepL card details

After you’ve created the account for DeepL go to your Account, and under the tab with the same name you will find your API key:

Find your DeepL API Key
Find your DeepL API Key

Copy the API key, then go to Settings → TranslatePress → Automatic Translation, select DeepL, choose your API version (free or paid), and enter your key.

Set Up Cost Control

From your DeepL Account Page, if you chosen the DeepL API Pro subscription, you can also control the overall costs that you might experience by using the API.

To do this, go to your DeepL Account Page and then click on Change cost control settings.

To activate cost control, check the box and then you can configure the Maximum total monthly price and the Maximum total monthly usage.
