           Summary: can't properly specify multiple translations
           Product: parley
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: parley-devel at kde.org
        ReportedBy: rrumberger at web.de

Version:           0.9.2 (using KDE 4.3.0)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

Often a word from one language has multiple translations in another language
that aren't synonymous. (e.g. the English "you" (singular) is translated into
German as either "du" or "Sie"; the two translations are in no way synonymous.)
In those cases one usually should know all possible translations.

In KVocTrain this was solved using a comma. This allowed for testing all(!)
translations without having to remember the order in which they were entered.

In the current version of parley, one can abuse the synonyms function to at
least get it to recognise both translations as correct, however one can't make
sure that all possible translations were entered.

This missing feature has rendered parley a lot less useful to me than KVocTrain
