"I thought that I never erred", although less common in English, should also be accepted.

This sentence can also be interpreted as "I thought I never made mistakes." I reported it.

Yes, especially since they accept "I thought that I never made a mistake." (Eu pensei/achei que eu nunca cometi um erro/havia errado). I reported it too. =]

The correct translation for "I thought I would never make a mistake is "Eu pensei que eu nunca erraria"

Therefore, "I thought I might never make a mistake" might be better.

I think that it may depend on whether you are discussing a situation in the past that is reality based or whether you are describing a situation that is hypothetical and unfulfilled.

These translators have no clue about the range of possible correct English translations.

I think they might not have thought of every possible solution right off the bat, but that's how duo works, I suppose: they put in what they can think of when they set it up, and the users report other possibilities to improve the system. =]

"I never thought i would make a mistake"? it seems more natural to me.

What about: "I thought I was never wrong."?

Why is the translation to english "I thought that i never would make a mistake" wrong? Please can someone explain, why?

I never would .... OR I would never ....

Ron Seymour: Is 'I never thought I would make a mistake' so far removed from the sentence 'I thought I would never make a mistake'? Is this splitting hairs?

Couldn't it also be "i thought i would never miss" in case the object of "miss" would be a target ?
