English translations wrong or awkward

After giving a correct answer and being marked incorrect there is the report feature. However, if the sentence to be translated is a correct sentence in Hungarian but the DUO suggested English is incorrect or awkward there is no choice for reporting that.

If I want to suggest a correct answer I have to suffer being marked wrong and then copy and paste the DUO answer to get it right the next time I am faced with that sentence.

There should be a checkbox for “my answer should be accepted” when we are translating from learning language (Hungarian here) to native or language we are coming from (English in this case.)

Please? !

I agree, or to say that the English translation is awkward - I have had this issue with Russian the most, and some phrasing in Spanish. Both for English speakers.

Perhaps we can join forces, since your situation is a special case of the problem I reported here (https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/28350397). Maybe you could upvote that thread so it will gain more attention. I did the same here.
