    Y apesar de que dicen que los años son sabios And ___ that they say years are wise
    Todavia se siente el dolor The pain still feels??

    Que quiere decir "apesar"? Lo he buscado en el diccionario y no está allá por lo visto. Hay "pesar", sin embargo. Pero no sé si eso importa.
    ¿Sabe alguien español como se dice "apesar" en inglés?

    Y puedes decirme ese párrafo en inglés? Porque no sé lo que la mayor parte de ello significa.

    Gracias :)
    En inglés, can someone please help me with translating these phrases from a song? I'm especially having trouble with "apesar", since it's not anywhere in the WR dictionary that I can see.

    Mexico, spanish
    a pesar-although
    Mi intento: Although they say that time is wise, you can still feel the pain

    Like Silvester says.. A pesar = although

    or A pesar can also be said as = even though

    Also, read this: http://www.wordreference.com/es/en/translation.asp?spen=pesar

    The use of the reciprocal "se" often translates as "one". Se habla español = One speaks Spanish, or more commonly, Spanish is spoken, or They speak Spanish.

    Se siente el dolor = The pain feels itself (very literally) or more fluently, what Silvester said.

    The pain feels itself??... can the pain feel??...

    First thing, you will never find "apesar" in a dictionary, just because you say it separetely: "A pesar". As silvester said, "although" is the best translation.

    "Although it has been said
    that the years are wise, you can still
    feel the pain"

    To love you I need a reason,
    and it is hard to believe
    that exists no other than this love.

    Puedes usar varios connectors:
    Despite, regardless o in spite of

    Despite the old saying the older you get the wiser you become,
    It still hurts.
