    “Al tiempo que se contribuye con el embellecimiento del entorno y es menos vulnerable ante las inclemencias del tiempo, se ofrece un señal de óptima calidad, sin interrupciones”, expresó Bonilla.

    ?: I'm having trouble understanding the first part.

    my attempt:
    “While contributing to the embellishment of its surroundings and being less vulnerable to the harshness of time, we are offering a signal of optimal quality, without interruptions,” expressed Bonilla.

    Quieres corregir el texto en inglés?

    Tienes un error en el texto en español: UNA SEÑAL y no UN SEÑAL

    I'm traslating into English, so I don't care about the errors in Spanish. I just want to make sure I have the right idea in English.

    I'm not quite sure how to translate the first part, but I think "las inclemencias del tiempo" is actually "inclement weather". Knowing the sentence that comes before it might make it easier to help.

    definitely "less susceptible to weather damage" in this case.
    Really need some more context from before this sentence to make more sense of it.

    We are by nature pedantic on this site: "...gramática española..." :)
    No podemos asegurarnos de una traducción adecuada si hay errores en el texto original.

    Ooops. Did not spot that. Just spotted this near the top of the list due to the recent comment.

    Note to self: pay more attention to posting dates.
