A Spanish colleague and myself were debating the translation for picky in Spanish. This dictionary gives three definitions for a "picky eater". Mañoso, Quisquilloso, and Tiquismiquis. My Spanish family uses the term "delicado" to describe a picky person.

    They're all synonyms. Mañoso, quisquilloso, tiquismiquis and delicado, are used for the same meaning.

    Thanks for your interest in our dictionaries. I reviewed the entries picky and fussy eater (picky eater has been removed from the English base dictionary) and made some adjustments in the translations proposed under fussy eater. Other than that, I think these entries are OK. Changes will be visible once our databases are updated in the next months.
