    Can somebody tell me what is "motor trade" as a job in England? (I need the translation into Spanish). I know that trade is also career, however, I don't see how to put it together with motor.

    Thank you very much.

    Pues voy a tener que poner eso porque me urge un poquito. Si a alguien se le ocurre algo mejor, le estaré muy agradecida.

    Gracias, Suso.

    Un saludo.

    Hi everyone.
    Great forum you have here.
    I do not want to be rude, but I have found this definition in the Collins' dictionary:

    The motor trade: the business of selling and buying cars and other road vehicles.

    In México that means: vendedor de vehículos motorizados.

    I hope to be helpful.

    My best.

    Generally speaking it's "buying and selling cars. It may also include repair/servicing".
    How'd you say that in Spanish?

    Como dice Masood parece que puede abarcar bastantes actividades
    Sale en la canción de The Beatles "She's leaving home"
    "... Friday morning at nine o'clock she is far away. Waiting to keep the appointment she made, meeting a man from the motor trade"
    Siempre lo he traducido mentalmente como "un hombre del gremio del automovil"

    De acuerdo con Ferrol.
    The motor trade incluye todas las actividades relacionadas con este gremio.
    ¿También vale 'en el sector del automovil'?

    Aunque a mi personalmente el "gremio" me sugiere específicamente a las personas solo, y el "sector" también a las instalaciones o a las actividades
