      Came here to advertise? Read first   12/05/2016

      Over the last few months, there's been a huge increase of members coming here just to advertise their own products, services, or whatever.
      This is fine, but the "General Discussions" section is not the right place. If you came here to advertise anything you made or provide yourself, do this here.
      If you came here to advertise anything you love to use, do it here. Thank you for your understanding. And remember: anything we consider spam is subject to the ban hammer. Any smash is available free of charge.

  1. Sometimes I have to translate a text from English to German and I have an intresting technique that produces good results: I mainly use Google Translate, but also Bing (better for some short texts). I set Google Translate to the source language and the target language, then I get the result and I change the target language and the source language. I will change the initial text, in general to be more explicit and less idiomatic, until the result has the same meaning as the original. I In the end, I just need to know if the translated text has any serious incongruity. Can anyone good in Germany language help me point out some relevant translation problem?
