New immersion view now available to all
Last week, we mentioned we'd be testing some updates to the immersion view (http://duolingo.com/#/comment/400056). We found that the new immersion view performed well—people liked it! That's why, this week, we've released these updates to all Duolingo members. To try your hand at translating just click on 'immersion', and go from there. Enjoy!
I think the addition of comments for translations if very helpful so that if an edit is made you can see where you went wrong and learn for the future. Some of the edits I have found to not be so helpful. Where someone will capitalize the beginning of every word in the translation of a title for example. But I think the quality of the tool is going to be based more around the users and how willing they are to assist each other and produce the most accurate translation and learning experience than the functionality of the tool itself; which from the previous edition is vastly better.
