Inappropriate Exception for queries to Ukranian

See original GitHub issue

Instead of appropriately raising DeepLException: Bad request, message: Value for 'target_lang' not supported., the request throws TooManyRequestsException: Too many requests, DeepL servers are currently experiencing high load, message: Too many requests after ~10s of sleeping. It would be much better to raise early that it is not currently supported.

Hi @jvacek Jonas and @gantoin Antoine, yes DeepL supports Ukrainian now.

Yes it was caused by the backend API not this Python library. We will fix the issue, so it should not happen again next time we release a new language.

jvacekcommented, Sep 16, 2022

This might actually be an issue for the backend instead of the Python package actually, I would not be surprised if the response being given by the API is the cause of the exception being faulty. i.e. I would assume the other implementations of the deepl package would suffer from a similar thing
