  5. Would translations improve by…


Would translations improve by showing you English (and Spanish) context?

So if you start translating at sentence 5, you would see the first four sentences in Spanish along with the best translation for each in English.

Would that improve translations?

This would help, even if you've translated the first four sentences, too. It's hard to be consistent when looking at each part in isolation. Sometimes I go back to see what I opted for in an earlier sentence in a string.


I guess I'd rather have a choice of my own or others' translations, because the best translation can be flawed if you're the first human to work on it.


Yes it would help a lot, and I agree with both of the comments so far by monzac
