    Welcome to the forum!
    Impinge does not exist in Spanish. This is an English word and the Spanish equivalents are: 'afectar' o 'incidir'.
    Hope it helps

    Gostei. :thumbsup: No português é , ou uma palavra muito parecida, ou um falso cognato - como sempre - imiscuir-se do latim immiscuere. Só que o significado deste em português é : intrometer-se.

    From Latin "impingere", the Italian got"rimpinzare" (atiborrar) F.i.Rimpinzare le oche di cibo,
    and English "to impinge" and "impingement"; it means 1.to bump into,(chocar), and 2.to influence(influir), & to interfere(interferir).
