Dear sir, I just wonder if one day when we translate songs here if will be a possibility to translate a song with 2 or 3 (or more) languages originaly by putting on the "select a language" what langages are in.
For example a song of Manu Chao has 'French, Spanish and English' so we can put the song is tranlated into: 'Norwegian, Icelandic and Swedish'
or 'English, French and Spanish'
(I hope you understand what I mean, like this peaople will know in wich languages the languages of original song is translated)

Sorry, I'm not quite sure if I get what you mean. But, if I understand you right, you want to mark that a song or translation has parts in more than one language?
You can do that. Just hold the ctrl key on your keyboard for selecting more then one language.

it is not working I tried to do it on a song ('Suerte' of Jason Mraz) to do it ... but never mind it was just a question that people do not think that the translation is the same. I just put in the title in what languages it is really translated into.

You are right, it really doesn't work. I'll ask in the mod's forum for fixing that.

I changed the language of the song to English and Spanish, that works.

I just tried it on two of my songs and it worked. I clicked on the first language, then "control" while clicking on the second language. Perhaps it deals with the browser. I use Google Chrome.

@brightswan: Not sure if you misunderstood us. We are talking about choosing more than one language for a translation, not for a song.
I normally use Firefox, now I also tried it in Internet Explorer (I don't have Chrome) and it didn't work.

@Sciera - You're right - I just tried it on a translation and it doesn't work. Sad

not only did it not work for me (for the song part, in chrome), it also chose the least used language for the display. btw, congrats on the new design - I hope some of these interface fixes would follow soon.

As you probably figured out already, only one language can be selected for a song/translation/request. It's slightly different from the previous version though.
