It would be an improvement if those who ask for help on translations could be sure to do the following when making consultations, while recognizing that some are already making a good effort:

1.- Try to include as much context as possible, maybe the entire sentence and also including your own best guess if you have one; and

2.- (Much omission here) If you know, please tell us where the translation is to be used; country-region-level of population, etc., since so many terms have regional variations.



In that way, those of us who reply can provide you with the best answer!
