What does the green puzzle piece mean?

After translating something in the Immersion section, my stream may show a gain in green puzzle pieces next to gold coins for skill points. What do the green puzzle pieces count? It can't be to do with translation tiers because they are based on other people's up- and down-votes, which do not seem to correspond to gaining puzzle pieces.

Thanks for any answers!

You get one puzzle piece per sentence translated. I think at one point the number of puzzle pieces was displayed on your profile along with the skill points, words learned, and streak, but as of the moment the only place the puzzle pieces show up is in your stream and as far as I know there's no way to see a total number anywhere.

These simply show how many sentences you have translated, not, as I thought at first, a grand puzzle you get to put together as you translate stuff (which, by the way, would be a nice addition perhaps).

Try searching the discussion page next time. There are plenty of discussions about this. (I did the same thing and made a discussion, and was told by another user about a helpful discussion on this, but I can't find it now.)

Happy translating! :)
