  • RE: Possible synonyms and wrong audio track (Spanish, French)

    Hi @Emily!

    Thanks for letting us know!

    As for "marido/esposo", I'll change it on our database because, as you mentioned, they're full synonyms. Regarding your doubts in French, I'll ask my fellow french linguist so she can explain those issues to you.

    ¡Feliz aprendizaje!

  • RE: Word missing part of speech, etc. in Spanish course.

    Hi there!

    Thank you for bringing our attention to it! We've administered all the necessary changes, and added the correct tag, which, in this case, is VERB FUTURE 2nd PERSON SINGULAR.

    Keep up the good work!

    ¡Feliz aprendizaje!

  • RE: When will the Spanish course get extended?

    Hi @alex-zorach! Thank you very much for your kind words! 🙂

    Regarding the total word count on our EN>ES course, it is almost 6000 at the moment (the actual number is 5935, to be more specific). We also released a Business focus two days ago, so now you can learn around 1200 relevant business terms and contexts in Spanish 💼

    ¡Feliz aprendizaje!

  • RE: Storage / Facility

    ¡Hola!

    1. En este contexto, storage, facility y space se combinan para formar una única unidad de significado:
    • storage suele significar "almacenamiento, almacén"; facility suele significar "instalación, servicio"; pero storage facility y "storage space" se combinan, lo que, literalmente, resulta en "instalación de almacenamiento" ("almacén") y "espacio de almacenamiento" ("espacio para almacenar").
    1. El significado más común del término "insano" en español es "perjudicial para la salud", aunque el significado requerido para este contexto también exista (loco/a,). En este caso, el problema de añadir "insano" como traducción correcta es que nos arriesgamos a crear una falsa equivalencia de significados entre lo que insane significa en inglés (descabellado, loco/a) y lo que puede significar en español ("no sano", lo que se traduciría al inglés como unhealthy ; y, en mucha menor medida, "loco/a", que sí se traduciría como insane). A parte de esto, la expresión "petición insana" no suena natural en español, y tampoco expresa el significado del contexto original en inglés.

    Happy learning!

  • RE: "Especially"

    @silvia-raga Debería figurar la siguiente traducción: "Hemos mejorado la facilidad de uso de nuestra app al añadir un sistema de reconocimiento de voz."
    De todas formas, actualizaré el sistema, por si tiene que ver con eso. ¡Un saludo!
