Er, what happened to "Translate into this language," if anything happened?

Hi, I have been trying to upload a document (it's a short Rilke poem), and when I get to the Preview page, and once I pick the category, I go to the "translate into this language." Now, for me, there is only a "none selected," as opposed to that AND "English," which is the usual. I've tried pasting as plain text on the Upload page, typing "English" into the Translate into this language box, and even simply pressing the grayed-out "Upload" at the bottom, but nothing works. I would presume that few, if any, others are having this problem, because I see a steady influx of documents in Immersion--so I must be missing something. Am I doing something wrong?; I've uploaded articles, without trouble, often before. If anyone has any insight for this deficient digital-native, I would be very grateful!

Works fine for me. What's the URL you're trying to submit? Also, you might want to edit your post to change the topic to "Troubleshooting".

I do get the same issue as you with that link. I don't get the issue with a link like http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gibson_ES-150, so it seems to be specific to that link or document (or links/documents like it). Now that this post's in Troubleshooting the staff should see it eventually and hopefully be able to help you.

Yes. I'll see if other websites, like Wikipedia, work.

--> This is interesting. Wikipedia is totally normal. I guess -- and hope -- my problem was unique to just those few websites I first tried. Thanks for clearing things up stecchetto!

I've tried with other articles, and other editions of this poem as well. So I don't think it's about that.
