Hi,
I'm translating a scooter manual which will be used in Mexico and other Latinamerican countries. Hence, I need to find one word that can be understood in most Latinamerican countries.
And by scooter, I'm referring to the skateboard with a handlebar.
My first attempt is "monopatin" (with accent on i)
I've also heard the word "patinete" but I'm not sure if it is widely used in Latinamerica.
I'd appreciate if you could help me decide on which word would be most suitable.

Thanks!

    Desde hace unos años, aquí se le llama tal cual: "scooter" (la mayoría pronuncia "escúter")
    Pero, antes de eso se conocía como "monopatín".

    Anybody knows how it is called in Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, etc? I'm trying to get accurate information for my client.
