Subject Re: The suggestion mode does not make sense.....

Hi Andrea and Ahmad,

I guess both points are reasonable while are on the opposite site.

Teamwork should be done as Andrea wrote. But in the special case if one 
user should be allowed to accept their (his/her) own suggestions, a 
'collective acception from the others' shoould make this option 
available. /Not aiming any infrastructure change, it just seemss logical 
for me./

On the other hand in case of there is only one translator, this option 
is necessary by default, since who else should accept their (his/her) 
suggestions (if no one else speaks the given language at that time)?
