The software I use to record is the Shtooka Recorder, which puts red text on a pink background so it's a little difficult to read. Please let me know if you find other such problems by sending me a private message via tatoeba.org.

CK 5 days ago, edited 5 days ago link permalink

Should these be quotes instead of two apostrophes?
(They perhaps look the same on the website, but they don't in the exported data.)

FROM:

Como você diz "amor" em francês?

These have the same problem, I think.

It was a typo. I've changed this to "classical music" to match the audio.

There are other examples with "classic rock" which is a fairly commonly-used phrase.

@Pfirsichbaeumchen

As an English speaker, it seems sort of strange to identify the gender of a speaker of one language, but not the other.

Assuming the German is natural-sounding, I wonder if there is some way to also make this English sentence natural-sounding.


Just brainstorming, not suggesting....
.... someone who is German and someone who is French ...


Maybe Inventorfrog's translation is OK.

Note that in some cases, changing into clothes would very, very, very unlikely be the meaning. In my mind, it never would be the intended meaning.
