Using the [FOREIGN] footnote

How to use de [FOREIGN] footnote:



The footnote [FOREIGN] is only used in those tasks where it is expressly indicated.

Only in these tasks, the moments in which the speaker expresses himself in a language other than the one you selected should not be transcribed but should be registered with the [FOREIGN] label. This footnote is placed by pressing the F6 key.


If you select the English language and in the audio, you hear: “Hello David, ¿Cómo está todo today?” The correct way to transcribe this sentence is “Hello David, [FOREIGN] today?”

If you choose Spanish, Italian, or French (or any other language), you should use this footnote when the speaker says 2 or more words in a row that are not in the language you selected, except for trademarks and proper names.
