Wouldn't this be more correct to translate with, "change clothes" not "get changed?"

"I would like to change clothes" should also be accepted.

"i'd like to get changed" is correct, right?

I don't get how this translation can ignore the word clothing

"to get changed" is a very common expression that refers to changing your clothes. I suppose there should also be a translation that includes "clothes" but I would not say that it is essential given how common the "get changed" expression is.

"Give me 15 minutes, I want to swap clothes" like come on...

'Mins' not accepted. Not a huge issue, but considering all the Chinese synonyms for time, money, etc., I'm surprised it was rejected.
