You cannot translate sentences because you did not add any language in your profile.
The 2 linked English sentences do have the same meaning sometimes. However, you could also add the other meanings that each of them have.
[#6274474] Tom may do that now. (CK) *audio*
(This could also mean [#6681635] "Tom might do that now.")
[#6274585] Tom can do that now. (CK) *audio*
(This could also mean [#6270319] "Tom is able to do that now.")
"May", "might", "be able to" and "can" have the same translations while translating, but have different meanings as you know.
I can speak English (ability) Ben İngilizce konubilirim.
You may go out now. (permission) Şimdi dışarı çıkabilirsin.
You might drive the car tomorrow. (permission)Yarın arabayı sürebilirsin.
I am able to climb this tree. (ability) Bu ağaca tırmanabilirim.
What I was suggesting is that maybe you'd like to add alternative translations, so each of those 2 English sentences would share this translation, but each would also have a translation showing its other meaning.
