Translating out-of-context sentences
It seems that many of the translation sentences are difficult to translate without context. Doing one sentence at a time is probably not the best way to get the job done, especially since I've seen things that say that they've been translated, but are obviously the wrong thing when you look at everything around it.
I'm sure this has probably been mentioned though.
So, we're making improvements to the translations and how they work on Duolingo. The founder of Duolingo, Luis talks about how they'll work in this thread: http://duolingo.com/#/comment/261407 I think you'll like this new view because you'll have more context (we won't just drop you in there!). Let me know what ya think when you see them.
