Hi everyone,
I'm localizing a game and I have an issue with the gender tags,

I have:

“Greetings!\nI’ve been waiting for you. I heard a was coming from the homeland”

In this case, how should I work on these gender tags, in order to respect the gender articles in Spanish?

I chose to translate it as:

"Escuché que vendría "

Is it correct? What would you do in this case?

Thank you in advance!
