Links from "X thinks Y's translation is very good".

If you follow the link from the translated text, it puts you into translation mode on the document, often at a different point. Once you select the relevant sentence you still cannot tell which translation was the one marked up.

Would it be possible to show the translation that Y made, so that you can evaluate it for yourself and hopefully learn something?

I think this may need to be separate from the normal marking of translations to avoid a "me too" effect.

The only thing is, once you see the translation, you can no longer earn points if you want to do the translation yourself (because you peeked). Did you know that?


@CSI Not a problem (although it probably should be highlighted since not everyone will know). My point was that the links are pretty useless as they stand, but could become a learning resource.
