There are far too many word-for-word translations in this recently added section.

Where do they speak like this?! A proper question would be "What type of documents do you usually translate?"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Cris_Grey

No native English speaker ever speaks like that!

It sounds perfectly alright to me. (I do get the impression that some people's experience of English is a little bit... err...shall I say... limited?)

I agree, these new lessons should be redone.

"What kind of documents do you generally translate?" sounds better.

Or at least, "In general, what kind of documents do you translate?"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Chrispstevens

I totally agree with you

That is accepted now. July 2021

Sounds like a "google translate" translation

Duo, sometimes, loves to teach us French by translating literally french sentences into English, which is more than arguable as an idea.

The funniest thing is that the French sentences he choose for that experiences are not exactly grammatical models...The caos is served.

Sorry if my English is not good, i'm not native.

PS. In spite of these problems, I do like Duo!

Why are most questions translated as clauses?

"What documents do you translate in general. "- should not have been marked wrong in my opinion.
