Dear specialists! A width of the line in space, available for translation is not enough in some cases, when the lines in original lyrics are long. The translated line doesn't fit. Can you make it wider (longer)?
For example:
A never-needy, ever lovely jewel, whose shine reflects on you (it fits)
In translation:
Никогда не нуждающаяся, всегда красивая драгоценность, чей блеск отражается на тебе (it doesn't fit, too narrow space)
Another example:
Back before you lost the one real thing you've ever known
Прежде, чем ты потерял единственную стоящую вещь, которую ты когда-либо знал.

How to make it wider? The size depends on the screen size and changes with device. If you mean resizing the field while you are translating, you can do this in Chrome:

You can move the right border closer to the right edge of the screen.

Well, yes, you can do it yourself, as shown in the image I shared. No need for any modification by the site admins.

However, after return pasting long lines still won't fit. As a result, number of lines in translation will be greater, than in original, you can't equalize. Current length is about 10.5 сm. How hard is to stretch to the right so, that it'd be 11.5 cm?

There will always be lines that are longer than the available space. Somebody will inevitably be unsatisfied.

It's inevitable. I want number of such lines to be minimum possible.

Please take a look at this. Just use the box resizer in chrome. This is more than any programmer could provide:

Anyway, long line can take two lines. It violates the basic principle: an original line is strictly opposite a translated line. It's more difficult in this case to verify the correctness (accuracy) of translation.

If it's an issue while you are translating, why not have a tab with the original lyrics only and then align the window with the field you are working on so it's easy to see the line you are working on? You have done translations without issues before. https://lyricstranslate.com/en/selfish-and-irritable-loner-dlya-egoistic... it looks fine - can you explain? Is this a new issue you are having?

I'm sorry, I didn't mention this circumstance. Namely, it turns out, that the built-in editor automatically aligns the lyrics. (so that both original and translated ones would have the same number of lines) But this is achieved by adding the empty lines (rows) to the original lyrics, as a result, it becomes looking not nice.

Well, it's not good. None of the lines fit normally. Request to consider the issue in substance.

Ok now I understand your issue - to be honest I didn't understand the issue at first - I had it today, more than once - here's an example

they should allow custom resizing of the lyrics boxes, or rewrite the script so the original lyrics and the translation match line by line.

Thank you! To my mind, it'd be good to hook right edge of the translation area and stretch with the mouse closer to the edge of the screen.

All lines fit, no one occupies two lines.

Ah, It still doesn’t fit. I need to get some longer space for translated lines.
