the english translation of this sentence doesn't make sense

"nonsense English translation" +1

Here, "Links" means the "links" in English which we click on to open a webpage. Maybe the capitalization is causing a confusion. Otherwise, the statement is fine in English.

"the english translation of this sentence doesn't make sense" Completely agreed.

I tried "What's wrong wih that one on the left?"

This English sentence barely makes sense.

Nonsense translation, agreed.

agreed, nonsense English

The translation the computer gave of "links" was links again, which I think is left

No, yeah it has to be referring to actual "links" of some kind, otherwise the word wouldn't be capitalized. So web designers or chain-makers it is! woo!

Someone says "Something is wrong with these [hyper]links" The reply could be "What is wrong with which links?"

I do agree it's far-fetched and unhelpful though.

This is the only possible context to me.

That's my translation -- wrong of course :) Links is capitalized so I translated it as "links" too (it's among the suggestions), but both "which" and "what" didn't make sense to me...

Nonsense makes me sad :(


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MilenaHM

Doesn't make sense to me, either

I respond to a Deutscher, ""What's wrong with WHICH rights?!"... "I can turn right just fine!... and please, we don't say it like that in America"... It's, "Why can't you turn right?"". Deutscher exclaims, "Verdammte scheiss-dum Amerikaner, I mean- What's wrong with their rights?! Why are they picketing the white house, Ja?"
