"I will swim when I am in Israel."

Translation:אני אשחה כשאהיה בישראל.

July 8, 2016



The translations are for "I will swim when I will be in Israel," not for the English given, which is "אשחה כשאני בארץ"


In my opinion "אשחה כשאני בארץ" doesn't sound good in Hebrew, so the translation should be with "אהיה"

When I'm 64 = כשאהיה בן 64


Valid point with the age example, these are cases where translating with consistent tenses yields inferior though grammatically correct sentences.
