Hello everyone,

I'd be very grateful if someone could let me know whether I have translated the following sentence right in Spanish:


Ella me dijo en voz baja y ronca, ´no estamos aquí para hablar de mí´.

She said in a husky low voice, "We´re not here to talk about me".

    For me 'low' comes before 'husky' in the order of adjectives.

    I agree with you that it is not necessary to mention 'me' in this context in English.

    It probably sounds better if you change the word order of the phrase:

    In a low husky voice she said, "We´re not here to talk about me".

    She said, in a low husky voice,.........."

    Edit: I'm sorry, your Spanish version is better than the original English. I thought English was the target.
