Poedit 2.1 greatly improves pre-translation
Poedit’s latest version, 2.1, is all about pre-translation and TM improvements. You can now import and export your translation memory as TMX files; plurals are supported too.
Most notably, online suggestions hugely improve machine translation in 2.1. And I mean hugely — you’ll see the difference right away after you update to the new version. This quality upgrade is completely free for everybody that already has a Poedit Pro 2 license.
2.1 also introduces a new, higher tier of machine translation in the form of the optional Pro+ subscription. When enabled, Poedit will use Google Translate or DeepL for machine translation, instead of the standard provider.
Especially DeepL is particularly impressive and translators love it:
Wow, @PoeditApp is killing it with their brand new 2.1 Pro+ release! The optional DeepL maschine translation is mind blowing and a gamechanger! Just tested on a #WordPress premium plugin: 99% perfect translated into German - automatically in about 30 sec ;-)— David Decker (@deckerweb) July 24, 2018
How to upgrade to Pro+
If you’d like to upgrade your Pro license to Pro+, you can do it in Preferences → TM → Change Settings inside Poedit. Your original Poedit Pro 2 purchase will be credited towards it, plus there’s an additional lifetime 10% launch discount if bought before August 31.
What happens if I cancel my Pro+ subscription?
It’s a “soft” subscription. If you cancel it, your license will revert back to the standard Pro level. You will still retain access to all Poedit Pro features except the premium machine translation.
