Sorry for this naive question but I'd like to link Portuguese sentences into Spanish, English, French, German and Greek (if there's any translation available).

For now I have two options only

1 - search a specific query like "Eu quero" - https://tatoeba.org/eng/sentenc...rom=por&to=und

2 - On settings, choose only por, deu, fra, eng, spa, ell

So I have either to choose a specific query or limit the languages I'd like to link sentences always I'm going to do it. Isn't there an easier way? Isn't there a way to allow Advanced Search looks for sentences in more than one language?

I don't really understand your problem, Ricardo14. I have set my settings to "eng, epo, fra, dan, nob, deu, por, ita". This means that I see only English, Esperanto, French, Danish, Norwegian Bokmål, German, Portuguese and Italian sentences and translations. I do not see Russian or Turkish or Chinese or olther languages with which I am not familiar. If I wanted not to see Portuguese or Italian sentences, I would just delete the last two options from my list. So your option 2 is probably optimal for you.

I see that the great majority of sentences you have posted are in Portuguese, which is presumably your strongest language.

As you point out, you could, for example, choose to see only Greek sentences without a Portuguese translation. If you well understand the meaning of those untranslated sentences, you could furnish Tatoeba with good Portuguese-equivalent sentences, which would be a nice service.

but if I want to "fast-link" (only link), I'd have to make a query AND set up Tatoeba to the languages I want. Maybe there is an easier way but I don't know how...

It's only a 4-step process and is relatively fast.

Step 1.

Go to https://tatoeba.org/eng/user/settings

Step 2.

Paste this into the "languages" field

por, spa, eng, fra, deu, ell

(Keep a copy of this somewhere, so you can just copy and paste it in the future.)

Step 3.

Make your searches.

Step 4.

After making all the searches you want, you can go back to https://tatoeba.org/eng/user/settings and revert your language settings to have nothing.
