    Before midnight Paul translated the article/Paul translated the article before mid...

    Hello
    Is it possible to use past simple in both sentences or one of them needs past perfect?

    Before midnight Paul translated the article.

    Paul translated the article before midnight.

    Thank you!

    Re: Before midnight Paul translated the article/Paul translated the article before mi

    They're both correct but in the first you need a comma after "midnight".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
