  • Buenas tardes, tengo una duda, al hacer las transformations, deberíamos cambiar todo lo posible de las palabras con sinónimos o simplemente con hacer la frase con la palabra ewuerida y que sea correcto es válido?

    • Buenas tardes Iñaki! La regla es utilizar de 3 a 6 palabras incluyendo la Key Word y NO alterar el significado. Mi recomendación es que te ciñas a modificar la frase lo justo y necesario para que cumpla con las dos reglas, es decir, lo segundo que dices en tu pregunta. Saludos y gracias!!
