Explanation:
Hi Ian,

we are happy to help you, but, next time, can you please make sure your request is submitted in the correct categories: unless you are working on a **very specialized** translation, you should choose the "easy " option, not the "pro" one; also, choose "other", rather than Tech/Engineering, Medical, Business/Finance, unless you know for sure that your topic fits into one of those. That way, you will get the right kind of help (and won't frustrate people who have signed up to answer only specialized questions in their own fields)!

Best regards,

Thanks for your help. I had selected "technical" category as my son sent me this message from Chile where he works as a mining engineer, and I assumed his course is work related. (My mistake) He is testing me because I have just started Spanish for travellers at the local university.
