I am currently studying Japanese, and one of my approaches for studying is by translating applications (since I also make apps for a living).

How do I correctly translate "pull down to refresh"? Which of the following is the most correct one?

  1. リフレッシュするために引き下げてください
  2. リフレッシュするために下へ引いてください
  3. リフレッシュするためにプルダウンしてください

Or do you have a better translation?

    While technically accurate, this has a distinctly translated-from-English feel for me – Kaji Apr 30 '14 at 21:56
