Although to tidy up is one acceptable translation of sprzątać in another exercise, Duo currently rejects to tidy up in this one (an incubator omission?), though it should clearly be accepted here too.
I first learned sprzątać = to tidy up from a Polish native speaker, and my Polnisch - Deutsch Taschenwörterbuch (1981) doesn't even mention the alternative meaning to clean.
Sure, that's just an oversight. Added now.
Yeah, I guess it's even a better translation, it only means 'to clean' when the two are interchangeable.
btw if you disable audio for a sentence can you then only get it for translation from English to Polish? or can you get it also for Polish to English (where it reproduces audio)
like if I see a sentence where you need to translate from Polish to English and there is this e/ę thing is that already a reason to report it or do you have to get it on the listening exercise
Frankly, I'm not exactly sure how it works, the important thing is not to have 'write what you hear' exercises.
btw can it be tryna instead of trying to? same way as wanna instead of want to
"wanna" seems to be really common, and still I have doubts sometimes if it was the right decision to accept it. "tryna" really seems a loooooot too much ;)
Ahv nevva evva seen 'tryna' rittn, but spose its OK fer ritin spokn street dialect - a complex language course which Duo will probably never offer... ;)
But if it ever did, "Ahm tryna cleenere!" might be accepted.
Frankly, I'm surprised Duo accepts the similarly colloquial "wanna" (= "want to"; "want a") in another exercise - see my discussion with Jellei at https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/17098609 (9th. post ff.).
So, why isn't "I'm trying to clean this place" accepted? It does kinda have a different meaning - that it is cleaning the whole space, and not just some part of "here" - but still I believe it's a suitable translation.
For the sake of the question, though, how would I strongly indicate in Polish that I'm actually cleaning "this place" completely and not just scrubbing away in the corner.
