Your brain will eventually start to skip over the translate phase… but it happens gradually so you may not even notice it until it’s already happened.
Think of it like this: learning a new language is like going somewhere for the first time. Whether walking, taking a train, riding a bike, whatever, the first time going to that location, you’re hyper aware of everything, keeping your eyes open for street names, landmarks, when to turn, when to exit and the number of the building you’re going to.
When going to a location for the first time, you’re so focused on the directions that you don’t even get to enjoy the view on the way there.
Now, after you’ve gone there a few times, you can relax a bit more and take your eyes off the map a little. And after going there A LOT of times, you can go there on autopilot without thinking about how to get there and enjoy every second of the trip/commute/journey.
Really crappy analogy BUT the point is: the first time your brain learns a new word, it takes a lot of concentration and memory to get it to stick. But the 100th time you hear/read it, you don’t even have to think about it. It’s there, in your head, and you don’t need to translate it to English because you’re so familiar with it. This is why SRS is so effective.
Stick with it! Your brain will eventually stop translating because you’ll reach comprehension. It may not happen all at once in a noticeable way but little by little the translating will stop.
