Version 2 Translations (Spanish to English) returning fewer examples

espiroespiro Member

I noticed a discussion on the forum from May 21 regarding missing data with version 2 and another one on May 1 about there being fewer examples with version 2 compared to version 1. In those discussions the issues were turned over to the developers, but no answers back yet.

I have a similar (if not the same) issue. There are actually significantly fewer examples returned right now with version 2 which is a problem for our application. Is there any word from Development about when this issue will be fixed? Thanks.

Here is an example:
In version 1 when I query the Translations endpoint (Spanish to English) for the word 'salir", I get subsense b-es-en0042063.009 with two examples sentences, but no examples with version 2.

Version 1:
                          "subsenses": [
                            {
                              "examples": [
                                {
                                  "text": "salieron a cenar fuera",
                                  "translations": [
                                    {
                                      "language": "en",
                                      "text": "they went out for dinner"
                                    },
                                    {
                                      "language": "en",
                                      "text": "they had dinner out"
                                    }
                                  ]
                                },
                                {
                                  "text": "estuvo castigado un mes sin salir",
                                  "translations": [
                                    {
                                      "language": "en",
                                      "text": "he wasn't allowed to go out for a month"
                                    }
                                  ]
                                }
                              ],
                              "id": "b-es-en0042063.009",
                              "notes": [
                                {
                                  "text": "como entretenimiento",
                                  "type": "indicator"
                                }
                              ],
                              "translations": [
                                {
                                  "language": "en",
                                  "text": "to go out"
                                }
                              ]
                            }

Version 2: (no examples)

                "subsenses": [
                        {
                          "id": "b-es-en0042063.009",
                          "notes": [
                            {
                              "text": "como entretenimiento",
                              "type": "indicator"
                            }
                          ],
                          "translations": [
                            {
                              "language": "en",
                              "text": "to go out",
                              "type": "direct"
                            }
                          ]
                        },
