After five month the wrong translation is still there: Why is it: OR flies in the English sentence and: ÉS legyek in the Hungarian translation? Is it possible, that nobody is taking care anymore of this Beta version.

I agree that nobody has done anything at all for several months! I used to get messages all the time saying my suggestions had been accepted...but nothing for months. No point reporting anymore I'm afraid...

I find that some of my suggestions have been accepted as valid answers now, so I do believe that someone is paying attention to our suggestions And I believe that I discern some other corrections and refinements as well. I love the Magyar language and pray for Hungary

I think it is fine with OR. Three years ago the translation used "and", but then it was changed to or.

See the discussion here: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/16876471

In logic, Not (A or B) = (Not A) and (Not B)

Bees "and" flies

VAGY legyek - because it is OR flies in the English sentence.

Is using "or" incorrect in the translation? I believe that "or" is acceptable as a matter of logic and elegance, at least in this enumerative context where things are being listed.
