    Hola a tod@s ,

    Tengo una pregunta sobre el uso de la palabra 'sobre' en Internet. ?Se puede decir "sobre" por "about" en una pagina web? Por ejemplo, ?tendria sentido decir "Sobre la organizacion" si el titulo original de la pagina es "About the organization"?

    (Can you use the word "sobre" to mean "about" on a webpage that provides more information about a given topic, as in the page title "Sobre la organizacion" for "About the organization"?)

    Perdonen la falta de tildes.

    Gracias

    Hola, bienvenido a WR, yo lo pondría así:

    Acerca de la empresa/organización.

    Saludos :)

    I've seen it used before... but I've seen lots of bad website translations... but then again, lots of terms are english-ized when they originate from the web...

    I think it would be more natural to say: "Nuestra Organización" or something like that.

    I've also seen sites that simply state it this way: Quienes somos (obviously with the appropriate accent in place).

    Hope this helps.

    Cierto Big Lar, también he visto simplemente 'Información de la Empresa', pero creo que tu sugerencia está mucho mejor, pero son opciones.

    Saludos :)

    I translated a website into Spanish a while back and put Quienes Somos (plus accent) in place of the English "About". It was for a company website. I had the whole thing proofread and it was fine. If you want a short title (important if it's going to be a button), then I suggest you go for the same.

    Buenas sugerencias. Se las agradezco a todos. (Este fue mi primer 'post' en el foro y--dado lo útil que han sido--pienso volver.)

    creo que optaré por "Acerca de la organización".

    !gracias!

    (edit: I would do "Quiénes somos" as suggested, but there's also going to be a separate page about the actual members of the organization)
