Submission not valid?
Hi! I just tried to submit an application for the European Spanish group, but after translating the text, the page told me that I had changed important such as <p> or % (?), even though I kept the formatting the same. I cut the text and translated it manually, and then I put it back to submit it, I tried a second time and the source text changed to a different one. It was very frustrating and I really wanted to apply. Any solution? I would try again if someone told me specifically what I can't change, because I didn't even touch anything that appeared on the error message.

Do you have the exact error message ? In order to check if this is an actual error to the "translator integrity" (Sometimes, a text can't be translated because the submission won't allow some normal words which can be translated) or an oversight from you in your translation.
Just in case, if for any reasons you can't submit at all, i suppose that the moderator of your language group could review your suggestion manually.

Thanks for all the info, I'll watch out for any difference in the texts and then I'll refresh.
Ok it was a translation mistake, I had eliminated one of the HTML assets by mistake, but now I can't seem to get the same text again now that I corrected it. Should I translate another text or how can I send the application to the moderator?

Translate the text you were given. There's no other way to apply for STS.
Okey I tried again, this time typing directly over the source text and making sure I wasn't eliminating any HTML mark... still got the message. Sorry if I am being a bother, but I already tried eveything it seems.

If you're getting the error that means you've removed something from the HTML. If by any chance you believe that's an error try and submit the EN text with no edits, if it goes through without a problem then the issue is with you removing something from the HTML in the process of your translation.
