translate " ": How to change from google-translate to deepl.com

Recommended Posts


I tried for more than an hour to find out where I can change the online service that is connected to the [translate " "]-command.

Or is that hard-coced into Alfred?

deepl.com has much better translation-algorithms than google-translate, at least for german, and I would prefer to use that service in the future.

Can someone give me a hint?

Thanks in advance!

It's one of Alfred's Web Searches. You can create your own Web Search for any website that has a search URL. That won't work for DeepL, apparently, because there's no way to pass your text in the URL: you have to type it in the box.


Here's a Web Search for Linguee, though:


Paste that into Alfred.

See how your link is spread over two lines and mine is just one line?


That line break in the middle of your link is the problem.
