Spanish to English translations [PRO] Tourism & Travel / list of pillows
Spanish term or phrase:peques
PEQUES – hecha de cabello de caballo
This is a funny one. A list of pillows (including an anti-ageing pillow!). This pillow is made of horsehair as you can see above...Am I right in thinking this is for children? Or does 'peques' here mean something else? Surely it's not the most comfortable thing in the world- is this some kind of punishment?? That's by the by- any suggestions or should I simply put 'Children's cushion'?
aceavila-Noni: it is from a pillow menu, although not sure about allergy thing- many people are allegic to horse hair... I know that it's a traditional filling for things like sofas, but had never come across it for pillows before! I had thought of translating it as 'kids', but 'tots' is very good- just wanted to ask if there's another possible meaning of 'peques' that I was missing. :)
Henry: there is no more context. It is a 200 word piece which consists of a list of types of pillows, this being one of the options. :) Yaiza: I have been asked to translate the names. It's for the clients at a hotel... :)
