    I am not sure how to translate into Spanish the word "over" that is written at the bottom of a page and normally meaning to "turn the page" when it would not be technically accurate to translate it "al dorso" because the document was printed from a computer onto two one-sided pages instead of one front and back page.

    So, in other words, "over" on the first page, really means go to the second page and not "al dorso." :confused:

    How then do I translate "over" in this situation?

    It would be "pasar." Or maybe just "siguiente" would work.

    Interesting. You cannot understand a preposition verbatim, never. As long as a preposition gives you a meaning, direction, intention, its purposed is served. Need a translation for the preposition "over" in that context? I should say "al dorso" is not a good one. I would simply go for "Voltee".

    Thank you, dexterciyo and SDLX!

    I think I will go with "Voltee."

    Cuando me ha tocado generalmente uso:
    Continúa en la siguiente página

    Sí, es un poco largo pero no encuentro otra manera de decirlo.
    También estoy abierta a más sugerencias ;o)

    Yo también lo he visto así, generalmente. También lo he visto "sigue..." o "continúa...", así en cursiva y, a veces, con los puntos suspensivos, pero menos.
