Stuck at a real world translation.

I cant get past a real world translation. It shows as incomplete, but when I enter everything is done. I even rated many translations but it didn't help. http://imgur.com/a/MpEOi Can I do anything about it?

How do you open such an interface? I've never seen this before...

The first one is just opened Basics 2 from the home. The second one is opened Real World Translations 11 from the first screenshot.

Here's what I get when I open Basics 2 from the home screen: http://s1.ipicture.ru/uploads/20120908/KQz7VhqZ.png

And I have to select either "Refresh the skill" or choose one of the texts suggested for translation if I need to gain more points.

How weird. My interface looks like olimo's, I've never seen one like yours, apazvantov. Do all of your lessons look like that?

Yes. Some have a smaller number of lessons but look the same. Maybe it's because of the language. I am learning German and olimo is learning French. Does your interface allow you to restart a Real World Translation? It drives me mad that I am stuck and not being able to finish the Basics 2 skill : )

I'm learning German too, and I don't have your layout. I've never actually had to complete "Real World Translations"-- they're just an available option, separate from the lessons. Try doing just random Translations from the top Translations tab?

Doesn't help : ( To complete the translations it wants me to translate one specific sentence: "Und wir immer schön dabei." I tried deleting the translation (changing it to blank) with no luck. I wrote Duolingo a feedback message and I will report if they answer.

I'm doing both French and German and have never seen such a layout either. I usually do my translations from the Translations tab and, apart from from an intermittent fault which sometimes won't accept a translation submission, I've had no trouble. I do hope they're not trying to fix something that isn't broken with less than optimal results.

Well this morning it's fixed! Not sure if they received my feedback and fixed it or I just had to wait some time. Either way it's working now. Danke alle!

I still have the same problem. I've already done two real-life translations and can't seem to get past it. I'm learning Italian. Can someone fix this for me too, please? :)

I'd still like to know how to get to this layout.

JareeZy und Elae: I also had the layout you guys had. But then one day I logged in and it changed to apazvantov layout. Not really sure why it happened. Mine also got stuck in a real world translation and I checked today and it is fixed YAY!.
