Hi! I'm sorry that this is another question regarding translation timeframes but here goes: I write to 12 kids in several different countries, and I wrote online to all twelve of them a little over a month ago. 10 of the letters are still in translation, but I noticed that the letters I sent to my two girls in India got through translation fairly quickly. I was wondering, is that because they both write to me in English and therefore the letters to them don't need such in depth translation? And I was wondering if that would be something that is particular to most of the letters sent to India, that they are going through translation quickly? I'm really just curious, but I've always noticed over the course of my sponsorship (before the new online system was in place) that letters from Asia (and Togo too) tended to get to me much faster than letters I would receive from Guatemala. For example, if the handwritten dates that are written on the letters are correct, I had often received letters from India on average within 6 - 7 weeks, where as my letters from my girl in Guatemala often took 3 months or more to get to me. I'm probably over analyzing this too much, but it has just piqued my curiosity. Thanks!
