Hi, I´m new in here and I´m looking forward to finding someone to practice my german. I am a native Portuguese speaker and I´m available to help anybody learning portuguese.
This isn't a language-exchange forum
If you're only looking for a language-exchange partner, I'd suggest a site like Tandem
But something you can do here is translate German sentences into Portuguese, and through that you can learn new words and see how they're tied together through grammar, and match the meaning of those German sentences with Portuguese sentences that you understand
I suggest reading these so you get an idea of what we're going for here
This is going to help your German a lot ^^
** Stats - 2020-12-05 Native Speakers Contributions with Links **
I am collecting sentences in chat between myself and a tutor. Is there not a way to batch upload new sentences? I see that there is no API but surely there must be a way to contribute easily.
Gratula a magyar csapatnak!
Szép munka volt fiúk, lányok!
SPAAAARTA-ezer mondat gyűlt össze eddig a magyar mondatokból.
Gratulálok mindenkinek, aki bármely módon bővítette a korpusz ezen részét!
With Christmas about a week away, perhaps some of you would like to browse sentences tagged "Christmas."
Remember that you can also use the "Christmas" tag when using the advanced search, so you can limit your search to just sentence that are not yet translated into your own language if you want to.
Here is an advanced search template for English to Japanese.
You can load this page and change the 2 places with "Japanese" to your own native language, and the 1 place with "English" to the language you want to read and translate.
[Updated: What I posted yesterday wasn't exactly right.]
I'd like to request translations for the following Portuguese sentence
"Eu agradeço por tudo que você fez por mim."
I added English, Spanish and proposed a Japanese one
Thank you! :)
I'm having trouble leaving comments on sentence pages and sending private messages. Is that true for other people as well?
I had that problem too, I think it just cleared up (I wasn't able to reply to your post until now)
It seems to work once more. I think Trang is investigating.
There was some issue with Gmail, apparently.
We're using Gmail SMTP to send email notifications and these could not be sent. As a result, any action that requires sending an email notification would lead to an error page.
Things seem to be back to normal now.
Yes, I can write both comments and private messages now. Thanks!
Is there any way to open 101st page in Advanced Search?
I don't think so, but you can reverse the sort, which in effect offers you an additional 1,000 search results if your query gets more than 2,000 results.
No. For performance reasons, we only fetch 1000 matching sentences from the search engine.
Why do you need more than 1000 sentences? Can't you narrow down your search?
For mass analysis we offer our weekly exports (there are also language specific files): https://tatoeba.org/eng/downloads
I don't think it would affect the performance if I could skip first 1000 matching sentences and get another 1000. I don't need more than 1000 sentences, I may need some other sentences that match my options.
Maybe do a random search and then search again? Would that come up with a new set of 1000?
Some sentences may repeat. This is not exactly what I expect.
Are you searching for sentences with certain length or number of words?
Yes, with fewest words first.
If you download that language pack and put it in Excel, you can do lots of things, for example you can count the words in a sentence and then you can order them. (sadly you need to search each of the sentences by their id if you want to do with them anything in Tatoeba)
This may help you: https://exceljet.net/formula/co...ords-in-a-cell
I don't know better options for you know.
Thanks, I know about that possibility. I wanted to discuss if it's possible to make it more user-friendly...
To get the 101st page of the search results, the search engine fetches the first 101 pages and then retains only the 101st one, so 100 pages are thrown away. While the performance difference between 100 pages and 101 is probably less than 1% (there's also a significant baseline cost for every query, no matter how many pages you request), there's a slippery slope to keep increasing the limit. After all, if you didn't find what you were looking for on the first 100 pages, who's to say you're going to find it on the 101st, 200th or even 1000th page?
I don't know the actual performance figures, though. It would be interesting to know how much higher the limit could theoretically be.
But if you can't find what you're looking for even though your search returns 1000 sentences, that indicates there's an underlying issue: the search engine doesn't let you specify exactly what you want, so you get a lot of results that are irrelevant to you. If you tell us what kinds of sentences you want to find, maybe we can add it as an option to the search engine.
I want to find a bunch of shortest sentences with audio to learn and then another bunch of sentences with the same purpose. So I don't looking for anything specific.
If you are searching for learning material I'm not really sure that you need an inner search options update.
Some members make their own projects using corpus data. (e.g. CK)
May you can ask them what are the options.
Why not? I think anyone could have much more profit if we had this opportunity to use built-in facilities of the search engine.
This isn't the ideal way to do it, perhaps, but it is a way that you can use temporarily.
Search for sentences which start with certain words.
I created a list of pre-determined searches for you, assuming you want to browse Spanish with audio, and see Russian translations if they exist.
You could also do something similar for sentences that end with certain words, or with sentences that include certain high-frequency words, etc.
