    I have a doubt, I am translating a balancesheet and I am sure if "Costos de la mercaderia vendida" could be "Cost of sales" ? Is that ok or is there any other way to say it?

    That's OK I reckon Claudia. But we need more context here.

    it is found in a list of expenses within a balancesheet! Other items could be freight, gas expenses etc. Does this help you?

    I totally agree:thumbsup:, however if you are looking for a literal translation, you can also translate it as "cost of goods sold".

    My doubt was because I had already used "Cost of sales" as a translation for " Gastos de venta", that is why I thought it might be a mistake to use the same expression, i might go for "cost of good sold"!thanks
