Why should my Spanish translations for "jacket", meaning piece of a men suit, be checked? What's wrong? Thanks in advance for your answer (to whom it may concern). Andresalvarez 13:53, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Because the translations hadn't been broken up by senses in separate tables at the time, so they all have to go to ttbc, until someone can put them in the correct tables. Yes, it is annoying, but the person creating the tables doesn't know all the languages (they might know a few ;-). Robert Ullmann 14:00, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
And yes, I know you put sense numbers in, but that's why we use the separate tables with glosses now: the sense numbers were found to be very unreliable. Without going back in history to check the order of the senses at the time each translation was entered, the numbers just can't be trusted. Robert Ullmann 14:03, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
Oh, it doesn't mean that someone else has to check you! Just that you (or someone) should put them in the correct table. Robert Ullmann 14:08, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for your comments, Robert. I'll take them into account.Andres. Andresalvarez 14:38, 25 April 2007 (UTC)
