Spanish to English: Wind Power Detailed field: Science (general)
Source text - Spanish "La electricidad de origen eólico ha rebasado a la hidraúlica de manera coyuntural, a causa de la escasez de lluvias en España. Sin embargo, el fuerte ritmo de creación de parques eólicos y la práctica imposibilidad de construir nuevos embalses en los ríos en los próximos años hacen prever que en unos tres años la energía eólica pase a ser ya de manera estable -y no sólo circunstancialmente- la tercera gran fuente de generación eléctrica, según expertos consultados en Unesa, la patronal eléctrica."
Translation - English Wind-power-based electricity has exceeded on a one-off basis hydroelectric energy because of the lack of rain in Spain. Nonetheless, according to experts from Unesa (Spanish Employers' Federation of the Electrical Industry) the fast-paced construction of new farm winds and the now near impossibility of building new dams in rivers over the next few years lead us to anticipate that, in about 3 years time, wind power will permanently be established as the third biggest source of electricity.
English to Spanish: Gray Wolves Detailed field: Zoology
Source text - English "Gray wolves usually live in packs, led by an "alpha pair." The pack includes some of the alpha pair's offspring and may include some unrelated wolves. A pack's territory can be as large as 13,000 square km. Howling probably helps advertise who "owns" a particular piece of territory. When pups are born, the mother stays near them for the first three weeks, and her mate and others in the pack bring food to her. The pups are weaned when they are about nine weeks old. As adults, they may travel as far as 72 km a day with their pack and run as fast as 70 km per hour."
Translation - Spanish Los lobos grises normalmente viven en manadas lideradas por una "pareja alfa". La manada está conformada por algunos de los descendientes de la pareja alfa y puede incluir algunos lobos sin parentesco. El territorio de una manada puede alcanzar los 13,000 km². Los aullidos posiblemente ayudan a anunciar quien "posee" un territorio en particular. Cuando los cachorros nacen, la madre permance cerca de ellos por las primeras tres semanas, y su pareja y otros lobos de la manada le traen alimento. Los cachorros son destetados cuando tienen casi nueve semanas de edad. De adultos, pueden recorrer hasta 72 Km en un día con su manada y llegan a correr a velocidades de hasta 70 Km por hora.
