Hello,

A few days ago I have entered an answer and I made a typo mistake.
Effectively the word in English is slighlty the same as the French one (only one letter is different) and of course, I was looking at the EN whilst typing so .... I copy the same way ....
I noticed my mistake just after clicking to "submit" and I can do anything.
It is really an easy word so no mistake is possible ... normally

It is not a question of points (that were awarded to the person who answered the same thing w/o my mistake) but a question of how to-do?

Thanks
Sophie

Hello, Sophie Aug 26, 2007

In case we make a typo in an answer, the only thing is to add a note.

In case a word with a typo has been entered into the glossary you can ask a moderator to correct this.

HTH,
Natalia

Simply hide the answer and make a new one.

Hello Sophie,

I think you can also hide your first answer and propose another, correct answer.

Regards,
Sherefedin
