How is this not a correct translation? "I'm a vegetarian, therefore I do not eat meat"

It's correct, but I think "so I do not eat meat" sounds more natural.

    Your translation is also correct, and I believe it should be accepted. Please use the Report button next time you get this sentence.

    I have tried your translation and it was accepted.

    This is broken - the voice matching is not working. I thought it was my pronunciation, but I played the actual sound file back to it: it will only match the first word, every time.

    "I am a vegetarian, thus I do not eat meat." was marked as 'incorrect'. 'Thus' should be 'accepted' the same as 'so'. It IS correct.

    thus is an adverb. In this sentence we need a conjunction and thus is not a conjunction. Although your example is semantically equivalent it lacks a conjunction, which I suspect defeats the purpose of this exercise.

    At the risk of appearing pedantic. "I am a vegetarian; thus, I do not eat meat."

    Does it seem like there are a lot of scenarios involving vegetarians?
