    Hi, is the correct translation for mid week the period from Monday to Thursday and for weekend Friday, Saturday and Sunday?

    Welcome to WRF, tirelaemor. This may be a question of register. To me, weekend is only Saturday and Sunday, and midweek would probably be Tuesday to Thursday. Others may disagree - especially if their Sabbath falls on a different day from mine.

    Note also the use of capital letters for days of the week, and English's slightly different word order from your own.

    EDIT: Also I think midweek / mid-week / mid week is a phrase in transition. I'd use midweek, but I would not be surprised to find pedants insisting on mid-week or mid week.
