    while + Participle I

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I must to supplement at all cost “while” in the beginning of the following sentences?

    (While) Reading he uses to make notes.
    (While) Translating a scientific article, he met with many difficulties.
    (While) Measuring the voltage we use a voltmeter.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    I think, the first and second are Ok with ‘While’ though 'during' is more suitable for the 2nd. However, I would prefer 'for' in the 3rd one.
