Idea: After submitting a translation, Duolingo would show you the words that it predicted you would peek at vs the ones that you actually peeked at.

Some people are discouraged when they know very few of the words in a sentence, but if this is to be expected, then they may not be so discouraged.

Also, it makes translation more fun since it would be interesting to compare the prediction with the actual results.

Finally, you could get more points when the prediction is close to the actual results, thus encouraging you to peek at words that you don't know rather than guess.

Interesting idea! I'll bring it back to the team. We are rolling out some updates to translations soon...
