neutral  Georgetina Meyer Kirkland: Why would the asker use an English word to get a Spanish translation for a Dutch word?
3 hrs
  -> it is only a guess... and Dutch is just above English in the tab, which means it is easy to get it wrong (I have seen it happen) - we have no context at all...

Sabio


Explanation:
Perhaps the word 'sevant' is a "Dutchification" of the English word 'savant' which is GELEERDE in Dutch and which translates into Spanish as sabio. Another word which could be used in this case would be 'ERUDITO'.
HTH!

Sabio


Explanation:
Perdone. No me di cuenta que la persona que hizo la pregunta quiso que le respondieron en el español. Me parece más probable que la palabra ‘sevant’ es una forma holandesa de decir la palabra inglés ‘savant’ la cual quiere decir ‘sabio’ o ‘erudito’ en el español. Espero que esta respuesta es útil.
