I'd also be glad if you translated these few sentences into your languages.

Dear Bill,
I would like to thank you for your translations. In fact, Arabic-Portuguese translation has to be encouraged, and I'd also like to invite you to check my other featured words on this wall. I'm sure you'd find many sentences interesting (and sometimes pleasantly challenging) to translate. Enjoy!

First of all, I'd like to thank all members from Tatoeba for 2017. You've shared good thoughts, you've taught me, you've been supporting me. I wish from the bottom of my heart you have a good Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!

I found that searching for words/expressions is pretty slow, and often for that I get errors

Yesterday it was inaccessible to me, I was only getting search errors. Today it seems to be working normally, at least at the very moment I'm writing this.

May I ask, how do you sort the sentences? Do you have a special program for that? If yes, is the program open-soursed?

What's the difference between "lingua" and "linguaggio"?
hide replies
Guybrush88

"Lingua" means language as a specific language that is spoken (such as Italian, Russian, Greek, and so on).

"Linguaggio" is the ability to communicate. It can be spoken language (the ability to communicate orally), sign language, or also a programming language in computer science

Here a sentence what maybe makes it clear:

You should watch your language when you talk to her.

In Italian this would be „Linguaggio”, in French „language”, Esperanto „lingvaĵo” ...
