Una duda que me viene a la cabeza.Estrella said:"puto", which means "gay".
Estrella said:Are you really very busy? bull shit!!!
Putada comes from "puto", which means "gay". But "putada" can also be used as an expression equivalent to "damage!" or "bull shit!"
reedhq said:Well, I'm no expert, but I'd translate it. "You're really that busy? What a bitch."
Artrella said:No, I think you are changing the meaning of "que putada".
I think it is "what a pain in the ass" "what a nuisance" something like that.
I cannot see the connection to either "bitch" or "gay"<<<<<<< if not the phrase would've been "qué puta/o".
What do you think??
Marc1 said:The amount of scumbag sentences that are posted here for "translation" is phenomenal, what is wrong with normal language? If it is not gutter language it is pick up sentences, and sometimes you don't even get a response from the original poster
Artrella said:I agree Marc!!! Especially the last part of your post. It seems nobody likes to say thank you to people helping them!
Marc1 said:I don't know about you,but around here the going rate for translations is $50 per 100 words, minimum 200 words. That means if I have to translate a driver's licence with 20 words on it it's $100 bucks.
On this forum people get an array of some very professional translations, in a flash and for free. I think that this should be pushed home a bit to get some recognition and perhaps some caution as to what is plastered here.
Just a thought.
Artrella said:Yes, Marc I've been thinking about that, especially because people (who never appear in the forum ) send me PMs to translate things for them...
I'm thinking about charging them....
Marc1 said:Well that is obviously a thought. I had a PM with a request for translation of a poem that was several pages long and would have taken me good part of a morning to do properly. Get a grip!
Besides it is blatantly obvious that some of the request are from jobs that people are doing certainly not for free. Some follow up and a nice note with thanks that job came up fantastic, I get more jobs now or something like that would be good.
Anyway, enough whinge for the year, it is 15 minutes to 11 and the year will be over soon around here. Have a fantastic new year, don't get overly plastered and remain on your toes as long as possible.
