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


Recommended Posts

hi,

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:

alfred://customsearch/Search%20linguee.com%20for%20%27%7Bquery%7D%27/l/ascii/nospace/http%3A%2F%2Fwww.linguee.com%2Fdeutsch-englisch%2Fsearch%3Fsourceoverride%3Dnone%26source%3Dauto%26query%3D%7Bquery%7D

Paste that into Alfred.
