Hi! I’m new, but in the past (before I was a member), weren’t there lots and lots of translations you could look at for one song?

Now, it looks like 3 translations of a song is the maximum shown.

Is there a way to view more?

Thank you!

(For example, today I looked up Cristian Castro —. “ LonMejor De Mí, and there is only 1 translation. In the past I feel like there probably would have been lots)

Hi. I actually don't remember such thing.. But the chances are the translations you are talking about were dublicates and that's why they got deleted.

Hi. It would help more if you attached an image of what you're seeing - that way we could determine if its something normal or not. At least for me, songs have all translations properly attached to them (even if it's more than 3).

I have looked through the song and its translation and there's only an English translation of the song, as the ShellyT said.

Well, you certainly can find songs with a lot of translations, including many in the same language.
This one managed to collect 15 English versions, for instance Regular smile

Pardon my intrusion, but I don't think she's referring to a bug. She's probably saying that, in her opinion, people used to provide more translations for the songs she looked for, whereas now it seems like there are less and less translations when she looks for a specific song.

To answer your question, I think that, in the past, less songs were included on the website, that's why more people used to translate the same song. Plus, I understood you used to sporadically visit the website, but now you're a member, so you could contribute as well to solve this "problem", innit?

Well, the most popular songs still attract quite a lot of translators.
This one is hardly one year old, for instance.
