Indeed, and sometimes in that forum when people ask for a translation the other way, you get some weird answers. I always say if you gave the same text for translations to ten different translators, you'd end up with ten different answers! The meanings may be much the same, but using different words, phrases.

Different answers are because of how the person understands the context of the phrase. Which forum is it?

wordereference - it's used by a lot of translators as well as students, as you may know


no context was given though - so it's open to interpretation

it's very useful - especially if you're translating something outside your usual area of expertise

What I also like is it is so popular, (Members: 452,364, Active Members: 17,737)your questions are normally answered within minutes. And people seem genuinely only interested in language, there´s no agro! Some very well informed and helpful people there.
