    Su traducción me parece perfecto. Otra manera de decirlo sería: Sometimes I did the corrections.

    Sometimes, I would do/make the corrections.
    I would sometimes do/make the corrections.
    I would do/make the corrections sometimes.

    As LaFlaca suggested, you can also use the simple past (did/made instead of would do/would make) because the use of the adverb "sometimes" conveys the indefinite nature of the action.

    I don't think "would" is appropriate because this is a closed event of the past and if you say simple past then it should have to be "hice" instead of "hacía"...,let's see what others suggest?...

    What I think so far...

    I would make the corrections (hacía las corrections)

    I made the corrections (hice las corrections)

    Lo que quiero decir en este contexto es que estaba corrigiendo un montón de guías y a veces hacía las correciones y a veces no.

    Esto quiere decir el trabajo que tu hacias y no al trabajo que harias.... disculpame es que en un teclado indio no tenemos las tildes.... I used to do the corrections sometimes (un hecho en el pasado).... I would make the corrections (yo haria las correcciones).... I made (Preterito y es hice)...
