Dear Henry.



Since this is only a suggestion, I post it here.

I guess that when you translated the heading for the Kudos page in Icelandic, you used machine translation. My suggestion for the heading is as follows:



Gestir hafa beðið um hjálp við að þýða þessi orð/hugtök



The reason for this suggestion is that the heading as it is now is rather awkward, saying \"Gestir hafa spurt eftir hjálp...\", since this is not an acceptable Icelandic. The verb \"ask\" can both mean \"ask someone for something\" and \"ask a question\" which is the meaning of \"spurt\", or \"spyrja\" as it is in the nominative.



Best.



Jóhann R.
