I don't think anything will change until enough people report a problem, that being "the translation is unnatural", and "my answer should be accepted", when responding with "filling out". I'm super stubborn, so I'll keep reporting for sure =D
And now I'm stuck on an infinite loop of filling out an application, fun!
In my part of the world, "writing an application" is synonymous with computer programming. If we are applying for work, we "fill out an application," we "write a résumé," or we "write a CV." we don't "write an application." Please consider adding, "I'm filling out an application." Thanks! :-)
Agreed Regney, this is what I thought this sentence meant (as a native US speaker and freed software slave), which kinda didn't seem right.
We fill out, or complete, or even submit, applications for jobs, and write a résumé or (less commonly in the US) a CV. And of course we write apps ;).
