I know that the English translation is going to be messed up, so I don't even bother trying to guess. I just type a couple letters and check what the "right" answer is supposed to be.

This a thousand times. I know what the sentence is trying to convey and I understand all the components, but I know no matter what I type it wont be the exact translation required. Rather than get frustrated I do exactly that, type in a few letters and then see the "right" answer.

On this train, people do not sit anywhere but dogs do.

Why did they put nem before emberek and not before ülnek?

-------- sehol likes to have its completer right next to it: sehol nem/sem . . .

ps: so do all the other bi-word negations . . .
