In the last 12 months, DeepL has also substantially expanded its product offering for businesses. In April 2024, the company launched DeepL Write Pro, a writing assistant designed specifically for businesses based on its own proprietary LLM technology.

The demand for AI solutions among global companies is continuously increasing. A recent IBM study revealed that 42% are already actively implementing AI and 40% are exploring its potential. In this evolving landscape, DeepL is leading the application of AI to transform the language industry, currently worth $67.9 billion and projected to grow to $95.3 billion by 2028.

Since its inception in 2017, DeepL has become the trusted provider of linguistic AI in a wide variety of sectors, from manufacturing, legal and retail, to healthcare, technology and professional services. DeepL’s specialized linguistic AI platform is a decisive investment for today’s global companies, as it allows them to successfully face all types of challenges, such as multilingual internal communication, serving customers around the world and reaching to new markets. Unlike general-purpose AI systems, DeepL’s cutting-edge translation and writing solutions are based on language-specialized AI models, resulting in more accurate translations for all types of use cases and a much lower risk of inconsistencies and erroneous information. Since accuracy is a crucial aspect of business translation and writing, specialized AI models are the most reliable and preferred solution to address linguistic challenges.

A study conducted by Forrester Consulting this 2024 revealed that the use of DeepL provided a 345% return on investment for global companies, reducing translation time by 90% and workload by 50%. The data speaks for itself: the platform offers great potential for any company looking to increase revenue and grow at scale quickly.
