  5. The Real World Practice link …


The Real World Practice link is gone.

October 12, 2013



There are a few things going on here:

  1. Whether the button appears depends on how much you've learned as well as the current inventory of unfinished documents. We only show the button when there are unfinished documents that we think you're ready to translate.

  2. We're currently experimenting with a different rule for determining whether you're ready to translate a document, and unfortunately this rule will need some tweaking before it works well for all users.

If the button disappeared for you, there's a good chance it will come back soon.


I just got the button for the first time. Strange that it took me so far down the tree before I got it.


Tried it. I don't like it. I prefer to choose my own articles to translate.


I see this link for French and German (both are completed) but not for Spanish where I'm only level 6. I wonder if it is a problem with Spanish or this link now depends on the level...


OMG! I just saw that I totally freaked out...


Maybe they're adding the Compete with Friends thing?


Hi. I find it very annoying that the link is gone: I do not have time to practice French a lot. If I do, I want to do something useful which is translating articles. It was most genius to invent "real world practice". but, if the link is gone for a while, I fear I will loose interest in translating articles!!!! PLEASE BRING IT BACK!


mine button is appeared two days ago, and its still here, i'm so happy :)


... and now gone again!


... and now back again!
