Translation tips

Translate the word or phrase the same way you’d speak or write it. Correct any grammatical errors. For example, if the translation says, "How old is you," update to, "How old are you?"

Use the same:

  • Capitalization.
  • Tone, whether it’s formal or informal.
  • Idioms and slang.

If the translation doesn’t include important information like the subject’s gender or relationship to you, translate it the way you think it should be written.
