Spanish term or phrase:robar
I need help with ROBADAS in the following context:
"25 hectáreas, ROBADAS algunas de ellas a un monte agreste que hubo que allanar en parte para adecuar el marco de la plantación"
The text is part of a website of a winery. The original text is a nightmare with a twisted stile, but I'm doing just fine, I just want that "robadas" to sound idiomatic in English. Would stolen work? Thanks.
Than you very much to all of you. I actually got a bit confused, but I've finally chosen Cindy's answer. Its sounds great and will match the style of the original. Plus, nobody seemed to have anything against it ;-)
Thank you again 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
