Problems with the English translations

The translations do not take into account the many nuances of the English language and do not realise that some of us live in England, so are likely to use British spellings of words. Many of the translations are narrow and/or clunky. By the way, although I live in the UK, I am Finnish-American and my degrees, including a BA in English are from American universities.

Yes, the course is freshly in beta and many possible translations are missing. The team is working on adding them. You can help by using the Report button and choosing "My answer should have been accepted" when this happens to you.

Please report whenever something should have been accepted or sounds unnatural. We are adding more translations all the time. That's what the beta phase is for.
