Issues with words.

In German at least, some of the words are totally f___ed up... For example "ring" the noun is listed as "I wrestle". That is completely wrong. Also the flashcards should have you type a definition and also there should be multiple definitions and parts of speech listed.

I have reported errors on the Italian cards too - I know there are some unexpected translations, but there are definitely just plain wrong ones also! I like your other suggestions!

I just reported my surprise that "arrabbiati" = "catch rabies." maybe it does, but that's sooo far from the most likely translation.

I'm in German too and what I notice is that verbs in the 1st and 3rd person plural are translated as to-infinitive forms, though I still haven't got to learn infinitive forms.

i just found a German flashcard that says tag is meeting. Also, all the nouns in German should be capitalized! and they are not capitalized on the word lists or flashcards
