  1. good indications. But for my is little bit confusing when don't have the same number of text betwen original language and destination language

  2. Hi Jose Antonio,

    that's why normally you first copy the whole source into the new language, and then start the translation. (via copy-icon or edit→copy source text).


    Un saludo
