English term or phrase: Choose the word that best relates to the word in bold letters.
I am looking for the most common what to say "bold letters."

I orignially had "las cartas en negrilla." But someone else told me they more commonly hear "cartas de molde." I've never heard that before. Would "cartas negritas" be the best?

This sentence appears in the instructions of a literacy test.

Explanation:
Hola. Didn't read well before, this is much better: "Escoja la palabra que guarde mayor relación con la palabra en negrita". Cheers again :)

Escoge la palabra que se relacione mejor con la palabra en letras negritas.

Bold letters - letras negritas
letter = carta, does not mean the same.

Palabra en negrita


Explanation:
Hola: "Escoja la palabra que más se asemeje a la palabra en negrita". Don't need to say "palabra con letras en negrita", it's redundant. Cheers :)

letras en negrilla


Explanation:
Letters can be translated "cartas"- as in "letter in the mail" or "LETRAS" - as in characters. I think your best bet would be "letras en negrilla".

"cartas en molde" sounds more to me like "letters (as in mail) in print".

Hope it helps!
