"Это займёт у меня слишком много времени, чтобы объяснить, почему это не будет работать." is an unnatural Russian. "Это" isn't normally used as a formal subject like English "it". Instead, sentence structure is changed. I submitted my variant.

ok thanks, the others sentences you've added are in ukrainian ? if it's the case, we will as soon as possible add ukrainian to the supported language, in order to erase these "?" for the language detected (but unfortunately it's 3:18 am in france and i think our webmaster is sleeping right now :p

Demetrius Demetrius November 1, 2009 November 1, 2009 at 3:23:01 AM UTC link Permalink

Yes, all my sentences are Russian and Ukrainian.

BTW, it's now 4:21 in Belarus (where I live), so I guess I'll soon be sleeping too :)

okay ;-) that's always cool to see someone adding a new language to this project
once the language will be added in tatoeba, the language will be automatically detected, but i think for language already added you will be able to say they're in ukrainian (except some engine mistakes, all the russian sentences should be recognise properly )

ok ukrainian has been added, feel free to overload tatoeba with ukrainian sentences :)

@sysko : "feel free to overload tatoeba with ukrainian sentences"
=> I'd never expected he'd take you *that* seriously...

Not bad :D

I'll have to update the search bar sooner than I thought, to include Ukrainian.
