Here is an attempted translation which a wikipedia administrator has deleted for suspicion that it is a machine translation. The second paragraph contains what I intended to write. I would appreciate any help here.

ATTEMPT: Processen i Filippinerna att åtala någon är nästan likande till USA. Det ''House of Representatives'' (landets underhuset) har den enda makten att åtala presidenten, vice presidenten, högsta domstolens medlemmar, ombudsmannen, och medlemmar av konstitutionella kommissioner. En tredjedel av ledamöter i underhuset behövs för att åtala någon. Senaten (överhuset) har den enda makten att sitta som en riksrätt domstol och två tredjedelar av senatorer behövs att döma någon. Om en omröstning att åtala en ämbetsman misslyckas i underhuset eller Senaten friar honom eller henne, får inga nya fall mot den där ämbetsman inledas inom ett år.

ORIGINAL: The process for impeachment in the Philippines is almost similar to that in the USA. The House of Representatives (the country's lower house of parliament) has the sole power to impeach the President, Vice President, Members of the Supreme Court, the Ombudsman, and Members of Constitutional Commissions. A third of lower House members is required to impeach someone. The Senate (the country's upper house) has the sole power to sit as an impeachment court and two-thirds of its members are required to convict an impeached official. If a vote to impeach someone fails in the lower house or the Senate acquits that official, no new impeachment case may be filed against that official within a year.

Hi! Do you mind if I write a (rather angry) comment at "Bybrunnen" (https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Bybrunnen, the main forum for Swedish Wikipedia)? Translating articles from other languages should be encouraged and not be treated like this! If you like I can buddy you and go through the articles that you write/edit at Wikipedia. In that case you can list the articles you write at https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anv%C3%A4ndardiskussion:Gunnar_Larsson and I will go through them as soon as I can.

Regarding your text I would write something like "Processen i Filippinerna för att åtala någon liknar den i USA. Landets underhus är det enda organ som har makten att åtala presidenten, vice presidenten, högsta domstolens medlemmar, ombudsmannen samt medlemmar av konstitutionella kommissioner. En tredjedel av ledamöter i underhuset krävs för att åtala någon. Senaten (överhuset) är det organ som vid riksrätt fungerar som domstol. Två tredjedelar av senatorer krävs att döma någon. Om en omröstning att åtala en ämbetsman misslyckas i underhuset eller om senaten friar hen får inga nya fall mot ämbetsmannen inledas inom ett år."

Please do and thanks for referring me to those places. Thanks for your offer to look at the articles. I tried creating an article for the House of Representatives in the Philippines in Swedish but an administrator deleted it within an hour or two of going up.

Watch out for the user Gujo.

Hi! Sorry it took some time, I have been quite busy lately, but finally I have looked through what you have written and commented in the forum. Let's see what happens and best of luck with your editing!

Sorry if I have to keep using your page rather than create a new one directly. I am just worried that Gujo would delete these entries before you even had a chance to look at them. I have another entry in the form of an infobox I wish to share with you. Just have a look. Please check Taylor's suggestions too.

I've commented here before about your usage of information, but I decided to delete it because I provided a link to our Official Gazette.

Anyways, a Filipino here, looking forward for your article. I'm glad you took interest in our Constitution. :)

Here's an initial article about Quezon: https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manuel_Quezon . I need help with terms such as 'resident commissioner' and 'Commonwealth' era.

The only tip I can give you is to not depend on Google translate..

It's also a shame that Duolingo's immersion tool was discontinued. It was very useful for Wiki sites. It also saves us the hassle of putting up articles here 'manually'.
