Como diria Ud.: hey!


Explanation:
The use of a letter sound for a word is common: 'u' when pronounced, sounds like 'you' [i.e. U Haul, etc.].
Luck!

bea0: No estoy de acuerdo en poner "oye" por "hey". Debe quedar "hey". (Igual sospecho que esta pregunta no es seria).

Bye


Explanation:
Hey Beth:

Me da la sensación de que ProZ está siendo usando por personas como tú para que les traduzcamos/escribamos las cartas a sus amigos/novios o lo que sean.

No me parece serio

Bye

¿Cómo dices "hola"? ( HEY MEANS "HOLA")


Explanation:
Even though HEY is used to attract attention, it is informally and colloquialy used as a GREETING, and it means HELLO, HI.

The translation for this is HOLA, not otherwise.

Regards,

BD
