Uploading document to Immersion

I'm trying to upload a document for translation. In order to provide a web address for the text, I put it on Google Drive and also on Dropbox and put in that link. But, the Text for translation doesn't show up. What should I do?

I know nothing of Google Drive but it sounds to me as though you may be trying to import it from somewhere that is protected, so the Duolingo site cannot access it. You would have to be logged in to get at it on Dropbox, wouldn't you?


I must confess I've never uploaded anything ... but by 'web address' I think you mean a URL and something beginning with http://ecc.com where the original text can be found. You can certainly upload from your Dropbox directory, and you can share that with others, but you can't assign this a URL unless you are running a web server on your computer.


If you have a Tumblr, you might try posting the document's text there and then snagging the url and submitting it to Immersion. I haven't tried it yet, but, it's worth a try. :)


You need to provide a web link :)
