To take with a pinch of salt (creer con reservas) Feb 4, 2003

The English versions are more often than not correct, but in a quick random dip, I found a few errors, e.g.:

Morir con las botas puestas is not to die in one\'s boots, it is to die with one\'s boots on (granted the meaning is the same, but the latter is the way it is said).

Parar el carro is to put somebody down, not to crash somebody down; or in a more modern idiom, to shoot someone down in flames.

So it could be useful, but it would be better to check its version against someone else\'s.
