comment Chinese/English/Pinyin Books For Young Adult Readers
Maybe at least you need to provide an example. "Popular" doesn't mean we can find the pinyin versions. Colin's comment seems more viable.

comment Email salutations for mother / father
I guess the 5 character indents may be just a tab space. Anyway, as a textbook, it should explain where the informal usages are, or it will definitely mislead readers. Besides the indent problem, the blank line below "您两位好", the unnecessary space before "我的英文已进步了不少", and the weird format of "敬祝安康" and “儿 小明 敬上”, all of these indicate 小明 doesn't care about this letter at all XD

The indents look so strange.

comment Comparison of tools for converting traditional to simplified Chinese
All of the tools you listed consider the context, e.g. you can test "乾燥乾隆" and 乾 should be different in simplified Chinese, but I don't know which one is the best (btw there's a new version of Office on Mac!).

comment meaning of “然後三個三個分成小組”
The repetition of 三個 (of course, can be 一個一個, 兩個兩個, etc.) is a colloquial expression that indicates "treating three as one group". "三個三個分成小組" means "divide them into groups, and make each group have three members".

For traditional Chinese, I recommend 萌典, available on android and iOS.

comment Is this Chinese sentence grammatical? I'm unsure about a few words and phrases
Such a sentence has many nested syntactic structures. Even for a native speaker, without careful syntactic analyses, he/she can't completely understand it. Anyway I don't think it's a good style in writing. Totally unnatural.

comment What's the difference between 重覆 and 重复?
In traditional Chinese, 重複 is preferable to 重覆, though the latter one is also acceptable.

comment What does the box say?
In my opinion, we should follow a moderate standard for the posts that ask for translation. Of course, I agree posts asking for bulk translation should be deemed as off-topic, but the rule "unless prior research effort is clearly indicated" itself looks unclear to me -- anyone who come here to ask for such kinds of translation probably fail in many ways they've tried, and generally, a native speaker who would like to answer the question isn't interested in how they failed.

Correct. And the stamps below read 五老峰 and 拙哉.

comment How to say “The general consensus is” or “In general, most people consider”
I would say 人们一般都认为... for “In general, most people consider ...” BTW, 总的来说 would give a Chinese native speaker an impression that you want to conclude something, so it's not always a proper translation for "in general" (depending on the situation).

comment How to end an email asking for permission from my boss in Chinese?
Well, for an email, you don't have to be so serious. In my opinion, following the formal format of Chinese letters in an email looks quite weird. So, just say what you want to convey with a polite, humble tone.

@StumpyJoePete Totally agreed.
