Real context

Postby J M » Sun May 10, 2009 1:47 pm

Many of the phrases are almost impossible to translate correctly without knowing the context in which they are used in the original English text.

A bubble informs me about the web page where I can see the full English text, but I have to type it myself.
It would be great having a link to go easily and see how the phrase is used in the original text.

It is really hard to translate single unconnected phrases.

Well, that's A+ from me. I totally agree with J M. It's really hard to translate some sentences without exact knowledge of the phrase purpose, watching for the translated text not to sound meaninglessly.

I agree too.

for example, I was muddled up that just "ssn" mean social security number or regular expression.

Especially, I think regular expressions need notes of caution.

Did you solve the context problem?
How can I know in which context a sentence is used.
