    Hello everyone
    I wanted to confirm if there is not an English word to translate "Cínico" into (Since "Cynical" is something completely different) I guess I'd have to rely on "Shameless" to express what I mean, right?

    Thanks,

    Gonta, this is a rather difficult word to translate (as you seem to know), so we would really need to see a full sentence of context to be able to provide a good answer.

    Let's say for example: "Sos un cínico al venir y mostrar tu cara aquí después de haber abandonado a la madre de tu hijo" o "Se rió cínicamente después de haber cometido su fechoría".

    We would use a totally different construction. So you would not translate 'cínico' in this context; instead, you would use an equivalent phrase. For example:
    You've got a lot of nerve showing your face around here...
