"Somos distintos cuando dormimos."
Translation:We are different when we sleep.
Thanks for the feedback. I guess I somehow confused it with the usage in cases like "we are different 'in' our opinions." Still, I find this sentence/translation very weird; normally people would say "our sleep patterns are different" or "we sleep at different times." Direct translation across languages often doesn't make sense. But at the same time, I don't expect the computer program to be so smart as to recognize semantically identical sentences with very different expressions. This is a great challenge in natural language processing.
I'd say "we are different in our sleep" is perfectly fine, at least in informal speech - formally people might expect something more like "we are different in our ways of sleeping" or "we are different in the way that we sleep", something like that.
"We are different in when we sleep" is... I can see where you're coming from actually, when we sleep is basically a relative clause so it should work as well as any other 'different in something' phrasing. But the model sentence is skirting the borders of sense as it is, I think expecting your version to get picked up as an alternative is hoping for too much!
You got that right; that was what I thought ;) I was basically doing some tradeoff between a reasonable direct translation (that could be accepted by their software) and sensible sentences starting with "we are different" ... and I confused myself ... lol
Interesting. I think your sentence has a slightly different meaning. "We are different in when we sleep" seems to imply, at least to me, that we sleep at different times (maybe you have a nightshift and sleep during the day and I don't, so we are different in when we sleep). I interpret the sentence as DuoLingo presents it as all people are different when asleep (as in, we are not conscious and maybe react to things differently, etc.).
Yeah this sentence is a really weird sentence to be saying, as it doesn't really make sense. Your other suggestions would make a lot of sense - I don't know if you've noticed my other comment, but as I said - I originally interpreted the meaning of this sentence very differently. BTW, if you wish to show your appreciation for a response, an upvote is a good idea.
I think this means "we are different when we sleep" in the same way you would say "I am different after I have had my first cup of coffee." It is confusing because it is plural. But I don't think they mean the two people are different from each other. But that they are all different when that are asleep as opposed to when they are awake.
