Here's a tougher one for WB to figure out

Posted by paulinurus July 28, 2009 in the Group General Discussion.

English translation: Don't come up with anymore excuses for failing.

EB: 别为失败找借口了!bie2 wei4 shi1bai4 zhao3 jie4 kou3 le. Lit: Don't for to-fail look excuses.

Dunno why EB didn't keep the phrase 'don't look for excuses' intact. Why not write as:  为失败别找借口了, and if so, would the Chinese sentence, and the g-word be OK?
