English term or phrase:oval cut of S.Amer. gemstone is placed vertically agst. a classic 9.25 sterling
An oval cut of S. American gemstone is placed vertically against a classic 9.25 sterling silver signet setting. Lines are sculpted into the sterling silver for a handsome look.
Can you help me both sentences. I need confirmation that it sounds cool and good and gramatically correct - We're looking for a S.American,Spanish European market.
Explanation: engastada en sortija de sello clásica, de esterlina a 9,25.
(remember: 9,25 and not 9.25)
El resto de la traducción se la dejo a los demás compañeros.
Don't volunteer to do ANY translation, no matter how simple in appearance, unless you have three things at hand:
1.- A top English-Spanish/Spanish English dictionary (+/- $400).
2.- A 25-plus volume Spanish-language enciclopedia (+/- $1,500).
3.- A 25-plus volume English-language encyclopedia. (+/- $1,200).
The encyclopedias you can buy 2nd hand, 10-20 years old -- and still usable for 95% of the consultations -- for less than half the original price.
You also need all kinds of auxiliary books, from the DRAE to "2001 Spanish Idioms" and "Diccionario Español Etimológico" (good also for seeking English words), to Roget's Thesaurus and McGraw-Hill's Dictionary of Technical and Scientific Terms or the AF Manual 11-1 series, "U.S. Air Force Glossary of Technical Terms" (free if you can get it from any Latin American armed forces friend with the right connections).
Cap all the above with weekly visits to your local newspaper and book shop - and a couple of sturdy book stands at home, each to hold at least 300 lbs of assorted publications, from magazines to cookbooks. (Oh, and don't forget to forego popular TV shows in favor of documentaries .... and to have three magazine racks: one for the living room, one for the bedroom, and one for the bathroom).
To paraphrase Spanish painter Sorolla: "Y luego dicen que las traducciones son caras"......
