Spanish to English translations [Non-PRO]
Spanish term or phrase:PERFIL DE ESTANQUEIDAD
ZOCALOS: ... LOS NO METALICOS INCORPORAN UN PERFIL DE ESTANQUEIDAD Y PROTECCION (FREGADO DERAMES...)
Explanation: LOS NO METALICOS INCORPORAN UN PERFIL DE ESTANQUEIDAD Y PROTECCION (FREGADO DERAMES...)
The non-metallic skirting boards/tiles are shaped to as to guarantee watertightness and protection against water spills
It's very difficult to translate this sentence literally (above); also I think there should be a comma between the two words in ( ). The following is an attempt to tidy it up, more economical in language but better English:
The...are watertight and protect against water spillages.
As for 'zocalos' these are 'skirting board', usually wooden in my carpeted part of the world, but ceramic in the tiled part of the world.
