Very often it appears i am incorrect due to the wrong choice of English words in translation or the wrong word order. I am not the native but still happy that i got the right meaning as i am learning properly. But 'at the computer' would be the last thing to come on my mind as the possible idiom
But is that the point though? I have to learn via the english version of Duolingo because there are no swedish courses in my mother tongue. So in order to learn, I have to translate everything in English and I don't always know the idiomatic way of saying it in English, which does not mean that I did not understand the Swedish sentence. Thus, I think Duolingo should always accept many possible translations in English even though they are not 100% idiomatic.
