Sei que meu português não é perfeito, mas às vezes é frustrante quando eu sei - sem dúvida nenhuma - que a minha resposta é correta e até pior... seria considerado mais correta que a "correção" de Duolingo. :-/

I know that my Portuguese is not perfect, but sometimes it's frustrating when I know - without a doubt - that my answer is correct and it's even worse when I know it would be considered more correct than the "correction" from Duolingo.

But I guess I get to help make the system better, right? And that is pretty cool!

They can't rush it a lot, since I think they only have one Expert in it, they could try adding someone else to it, or actually have a volunteer program, in which those who have finished, can correct some of the translations, etc.

From what I've seen they only have 1 Expert dealing with this, I don't know how many more people are in the staff to help with English-Portuguese (and vice-versa) or even helping with it, like Moderators.

Well, my Portuguese is pretty good and I am software engineer (full-stack web development). I'd be more than willing to lend a hand where I can.

Maybe you should write the staff and ask if they need some extra help! :)
