Isn't this correct?
There's no limit to the number of languages a single participant can submit! You are correct about the premise. The only problem is that you will most likely (consciously or unconsciously) bring ideas and notions from the previous text you translated. This should in no way be seen as an attempt at precluding people from submitting several languages. Just be aware of the 'dangers'.
