    Spanish to English espejo de agua

    The translation of "espejo de agua" as "water mirror" appears to be problematic. I have checked with another native English speaker from a different country (Australia), and neither of us recalls having heard the phrase "water mirror". From what I intuit from a hydrologic report in Spanish...

  9. S

    Spanish to English soberbio

    soberbio: the example currently listed misgenders the translation. The English should read "He's too proud..." because the Spanish uses the male 'soberbio' not the female 'soberbia' Es demasiado soberbio para aceptar tu ayuda. She's too proud (or: arrogant) to accept your help.
