2 Ways to Translate

Chinese English TranslationThere are two ways to translate a sentence.

1. Literal Translation - the meaning of of text from one language to another "word-for-word"

2. Understood Meaning Translation - the general sense of the text but takes into account context, grammar, conventions, and idioms.

At Mango we think offering the two ways to see the translations when learning new words/phrases and conversations makes the learning experience customized to the user's personal preference.

Psst... in our Mango Basic product release on November 23rd you can switch between the two types of translation while in the program.

Which do you prefer Literal or the Understood Meaning?
