|English term or phrase: Special help request!|
|This is the story: I am translating from English into Spanish a budget regarding modernization of a railway line in Poland. |
This budget was written by some Polish person in English and there is a term I'm not very sure if it is correct.
LIQUIDATION, appears many times related to demolition and/or modernization, but I think they meant anything else and don't know what.
Could any polish speaking person give me a clue?
Thanks a lot! :-)
|Polish translation:to eliminate, get rid of, close up|
The Polish term "likwidowac" rarely means to sell off.
I can liquidate my desk if you will. This will mean I am getting rid of it. Note that I mean in with respect to Polish. That's what it would mean in Polish. In English, the meaning is tied much more to a sale, an auction perhaps.
You want to make your assets liquid. This is not the core meaning of the verb in Polish.

|Thank you very, very much to all of you! Lota's explanation gave me the clue that I wasn't wrong in my interpretation. Only that demolition liquidation sound a bit redundant.|
These situations are when I most appreciate ProZ's existence!
Thanks again! :-)

to eliminate, to close down
I can actually see somebody using "liquidation" as "demolition" (not a very good translation though). However, it's hard to guess without a context (like a sentence).
Maybe: to eliminate, to close down.
