Frequently after translating a paragraph, one of the 3 choices given to me to pick as the best includes my own translation I have just submitted.

Is this how it had supposed to be working? It seems a bit strange to me.

It makes sense if you think about it. Maybe not foolproof, but I think it's one of the best methods. If you think your translation is the best, you should vote for it. It's all about crowd-sourcing. Someone else wouldn't see their translation and get to choose from yours and 2 others if you get enough votes. At least this is how I assume it works.

At times there might only have been 2 or 3 translations including yours.
