Le gusta ser famosa/o?


Explanation:
You have to add the question mark at the start. And you could change "gusta" for "agrada", but it means the same thing.
Good luck.
Yours,

¿Le gusta ser famoso /a? o, ¿Te gusta ser famoso/a?


Explanation:
Use the first one, if you use "Usted", the second one if you use "tú". Don't forget the initial question mark (necessary in Spanish).
Good luck!!!

As translators, we should strive for higher standards


Explanation:
Please don't submit these kind of questions. If you can find an answer to them in a pocket dictionary or have them discussed in a Basic Level course, they are not proper for discussion at a forum for professional translators.

¿Le gusta ser famoso/a? ¿Cuándo empezó a actuar?


Explanation:
¿En qué tipo de película actuó Ud.?

These questions should help you form the rest. Just use them as guide, and look up terms you dont know in the dictionary, or ask your teacher for help.

Do you like being famous? = ¿Disfrutas la fama?


Explanation:
¿Disfrutas de la fama? (formal mode) or in a more familiar/informal mode: ¿Te gusta ser famosa?
When did you start acting? = ¿Cuando comenzaste la actuación [en forma profesional]? Yo le agregaría esta última frase, porque de acuerdo con las preguntas posteriores entiendo que se trata de una entrevista para un actor conocido y hasta famoso. Y yo continuaría así con las demás preguntas.

This should be a site for professional translators only.


Explanation:
Just let me side with "andino" and "camy". It is a shame that those who cannot understand such basic text call themselves translators! Lately, we are being asked, English<>Spanish text, that should be found in the first five pages of any basic language course!
