Right now when I ask for English->French translation requests, I get 53% of Korean and Japanese songs showing up due to small bits of English in K-pop and J-pop.
When I broaden the request to English/French/German/Russian -> English/French, I still get 37% of Asian languages Regular smile

It's not a big deal, but maybe an option could be added to filter out some languages, like a third "exclusion" field in the requests selection form?

I would add the same field to the proof-reading section too and to other pages affected by multi-language lyrics.

I am also in favor of this.

As a quick workaround, we've changed how the orange highlighting on the requests search works: now the result is highlighted if all song languages are familiar to the user. The same applies to the translations search with enabled option 'proofreading'.

A bug with the search "in both directions" was also fixed - if you search from X language into the same X language, the search will return results "X -> any" and "Any -> X".

Well done, guys. That's much better already. Thanks a lot.
