  5. fenixpollo

    Spanish to English cuento chino

    This entry needs a lot of work. First of all, "la invasión de Marte" refers to the War of the Worlds radio broadcast by Orson Welles. And second, the term is not vulgar, so the translations should not be vulgar.

  7. G

    Spanish to English billón

    In Spanish, only the long scale is used (mostly, anyway), but in English, the short scale is much more common. The dictionary has this sort of backwards, listing the translation as "trillion (long scale)" or "billion (short scale, UK, dated)". The short scale is the one where one billion = 10^9...

    En el ejemplo se ha traducido "última" por "lasy" en vez de por "last".
  9. jann

    Spanish to English rechistar

    The period between "bumble" and "stutter" looks a bit funny in the translations. "Bumble" in the sense of muttering and indistinct speech also strikes me as a rather uncommon usage. Most English-speakers are probably more familiar with "mumble" in that context, and probably use "bumble" in the...

    It doesn’t include the translation of "curly bracket". You can search "curly bracket" in English to Spanish and appears the translation "llave"
  24. N

    Spanish to English telemático

    explaining 'telemático' as 'telematic' is not useful. For one, telematic is not a common word in english and for two, if I knew what 'telematic' was, I wouldn't need to look up 'telemático'.

    Spanish to English pestillo

    Two suggestions in the example sentences at the first sense of pestillo: 1. Label "Put the door on the latch" as UK usage and add "Latch the door" and "Bolt the door" as U.S. equivalents. 2. Clarify the different meanings of the nouns "latch" and "bolt." They are not synonyms in English.
