"Drinks are on sale at reception". Rejected, reported. A good number of the translations in this module want attending to. Once again the translation is over-literal; it is of course important that we know that "drinks" will be translated as "des boissons", but it is absolutely not the case that the other way round works. The English does not require the partitive "some"; in fact, using it here strongly implies a limited number of drinks, which is not implied at all by the French.
"the front desk" and "Reception" mean exactly the same thing. "Reception" and "the reception" are not the same thing. Yet only "the front desk" and "the reception" are accepted. Another example of just how difficult languages get to translate through a program like this as the concepts being expressed get more complex.
