    I'm translating a birth certificate from El Salvador. It says: Profesión enderezador y pintor.

    Is this "remodeling and painting"? I need an answer ASAP [as soon as possible].

    Thanks,

    Helen

    In a context of automobile repair it might be body work and painting.

    I just asked my grandma and she said exactly what Sprachliebhaber suggested.

    My final rendition in English is "auto body technician". I called an auto body shop to ask what the position was called with this description,and that's what they said.
