Spanish to English preceder

Dictionary entry: preceder

Richard Winters

In the example under the "Principle Translations" section for the Spanish verb preceder, the verbs in Spanish and English are not in the same tense; the Spanish verb is in the past tense, while the English verb is in the present tense. I would like to suggest that both verbs should be in the same tense, i.e., changing the English verb to preceded, or changing the Spanish verb to precede. Thanks.
