    putdoorchica,

    I don't know about you, but "que Dios te ayude" y "vaya con Dios" is the same thing. If God is with you, he'll be there to help and protect you wherever it is you're going.

    Literally, what it means is "May God speed you along in your travels." In other words, get your there safe and fast.

    Yeah, cvilla's reply is incorrect. "God speed" has nothing to do with the speed of something. It's an expression wishing someone good success or fortune when they are starting a journey or a new venture.

    Hopefully with that better context we can get an equivalent in Spanish?

    I do not if this is the correct spelling, but I have heard of this expresion when someone is wishing you luck or something like that. Am I mistaken? if so, please correct me.

    Thanks a lot.

    I have seen it written as one word, as in "I wish you Godspeed (or: godspeed)."

    Hola,
    Estoy traduciendo un texto sobre el mar y me aparece la expresión "Godspeed".
    Según el contexto, es lo que se dice q los marineros antes de que se embarquen en un viaje largo. Como no conozco el mundo naútico, ¿existe en español alguna expresión concreta con la que se despida a los marineros?

    Gracias mil.

    Sí que se refiere a la despedida de los marineros como bien dices, lo que ya desconozco es si existe esa palabra en español... (Aparte, claro está de las ya conocidas "buen viaje" etc.) Siento no ser de más ayuda. Un saludo.

    Not exactly, griselfh. Please scroll up in this thread, which is actually a combination of 4 previous threads that asked the same question. Also, make sure to check the wordreference.com dictionary before asking a question. Thanks.
