How long to start translating?

On average, how long does a person need to learn a language using Duolingo before being able to translate articles? I'm through Family in Spanish (almost finished level 7), but I have no clue how to read much of what I see on the Translation page. Curious if I'll be able to translate once I finish the course.

Translating on Duolingo is a bit like completing a puzzle. You can see the translation of words when you hover over them and it is your job to combine them into an understandable sentence (although Immersions might work differently, I don't know about that) Just give it a try and afterwards you can compare your translation with what other people answered.
