What do you think about translations?

    In my opnion translations may help at certain situations, but they are not that helpful in most of the cases, mayinly for beginners because they will get confused for sure. We know that a word can have many different meanings. So, it's very important to understand the context and not the meaning of every single word separately because the sentece might look senseless if you do it. If you're going to translate at least use a dictionary, do not use a cyber translator. Using a dictionary will help you practice and develop your reading and comprehension a lot. So, what do you think about translations? If you usually translate, do you have difficulty in doing it? Is translating an useful thing for you?

      This is a very interesting topic for a discussion.
