comment How to read a decimal number in Spanish?
There is a function in Windows that will tell you whether the local decimal separator is comma or period. I don't remember what it is. And of course, your local administrator has to configure things correctly.

The most common meaning of "desdecir" is to retract, from your answer. We're really saying the same thing.

plus one for your basic definition. In the usage I've seen, desmentir generally applies to somebody else's words while desdecirse generaly applies to one's own.

comment Translating a Bad Sentence in Spanish
The responses are all about whether the Spanish is good or not. These responses would be more to the point is you were tranlating to Spanish. But you say you're translating to English.

comment “I need to work on…” for a general sentence
I suggest that "to work on" is a separate idea from the "to work". So "on" shouldn't be translated separately. I would use "practicar" is the object is a language, or a skill where practice makes perfect.
