Hola!

La frase problematica es esta: Summers can be deadly in the city. Es mejor utilizar "mortifero" o "mortal" o "fatal" para 'deadly'?

Saludos :)

    El texto enumera los problemas relacionados con el cambio climatico; en este caso, se refiere a las olas de calor que se aumentan en las ciudades durante el verano.

    Look into "fatal" if you decide the English text is using the term deadly in a figurative way... Since there are serious heat waves together with power shortages and there are people that succumb to the heat, I would use "mortífero."


    mortífero, ra.
    (Del lat. mortifĕrus).
    1. adj. Que ocasiona o puede ocasionar la muerte.
