12. Below is the Translation Screen.  On the left side is the texts to translate and the right hand side is a list of suggestions from Google, Microsoft other users, as well as the current Wattpad Translation.  If there is no Wattpad Translation in the suggestion list, that means the English Words are not translated yet.  Those are the ones we need you to work on.
