Yes, that would be clearer in English.

But what you're asking for is exactly what LilyPond produces: the hairpin
crescendo is rendered as two diagonal lines in PostScript (and from
there into the PDF).

If you're seeing that as multiple horizontal lines, that would be an
artefact introduced *after* LilyPond, and it needs to be fixed there.
