This partly nullifies my previous post. :(

Sorry for not reading it first.

I still think it's better to look up what you're trying to do first, and 
maybe rather than list how to do it in all languages, you could have the 
option to choose your source language and target language, and see how 
it's done side-by-side along with user-contributed notes specific to the 
selection of source+target languages.

are even incapable of forming such opinions.
