Revised Translations

Most of the time, I agree with the corrections made to my translations and I also understand why the new version is better. On some occasions, though, I'd like to have the opportunity to discuss the adaptations so as to learn more from my mistakes. Is there any spot where such is possible?

There is a discussion section on Immersion articles. Also, if you change someone's translation, you can give a reason under it for why you did so. You could ask the person on their stream why they changed it if they didn't give a reason.

Is there a separate discussion section on Immersion articles? Where can I find it?

Glad you want to explain your translations, I always try to if it is quite different from the 'direct' Spanish you have translated it from or if you are changing someones translation. I usually do this in the little comment section under the translation itself but the 'discuss translation' (for the whole article) is found in the bar up near the top right of the page.

I think this will help to prevent some of the trolls that try and steal peoples upvotes for changing a space or something that can occur in translation! Hope that helps! :)

You can also click on the person's name and leave a message on their thread.
