    Hi there,

    I was wondering how to translate this into English. It takes place at a school context, when you sort children alphabetically. My try: Sort children by list order? Sort children alphabetically?.

    I don´t know if I´m right, but they don´t really convince me... Any help?

    Thanks in advance!.

    Sort the children alphabetically by last name and first name.

    It might be shorter. If you show us a complete sentence in Spanish, we can give you the most natural-sounding (and shortest) option for translating it.

    Thanks very much for your help, Fenix.

    I don´t really have a linguistic context to provide you with. I´m a school teacher, and when it comes to checking orally activites children have done, I tipically do this following this order, with the list of the class ordered alphabetically, so that everyone participates... Did it help..? :confused:

    Well, a sentence could be this: Vamos a corregir la actividad por orden de lista.

    :)

    Thanks, Silvia. Here's my suggestion:
    Vamos a corregir la actividad por orden de lista.
    We're going to grade this exercise in alphabetical order.
    We're going to grade this exercise by going down the roll. (seguir la lista de asistencia)

    Yeah, I think both of them will fit!! Also, By going down the roll sounds nice and never heard it before.

    Cheers, Fenix! Have a nice weekend! :)

    Alphabetically. One word - short enough for you?:)
