Uploaded document truncated

I uploaded Giovanni Verga's (out of copyright) "Certi Argomenti" from http://www.acitrezzaonline.it/novelleverga/certiarg.htm, but it has been truncated.

Any ideas why that might be?

The imported document is here: http://www.duolingo.com/#/translation/d04e892edc77d3d0933b114dcf517672

It's probably some auto-truncating algorithm they're playing with.

When they first allowed users to upload documents not too long ago, I tried to upload a few documents from Wikipedia that were rejected for being too long. Now I've noticed, particularly among German articles, that some are extremely long. I have also noticed a bit less formatting detritus in articles, those little bits like stray quotation marks, long lists of numbers to "translate", etc. Some still make it into documents, but not as much as before, unless I'm mistaken about it.

By the way, I'm really enjoying this story. I'll look for the author in my library today- thank you for the interesting upload.
