The arrow hit the target exactly is a result of thousand arrows passed off the target.

With Leatha's and Feliz's corrections:

The arrow hit the bullseye as a result of thousands of arrows that passed by the mark.

La flecha que golpeó el objetivo exactamente es un resultado de miles de las flechas que pasaron fuera de la marca.

With Cogumela's corrections:

La flecha que golpeó el objetivo exactamente, es el resultado de miles de flechas que no dieron en la diana

  • I would say, "hit the bullseye as a result of thousands of arrows that missed the target." - Leatha Feb 9, 2012 flag
  • Yes that sounds better Leatha or as a result of thousands of arrows that passed by (literally: outside of ) the mark ! - FELIZ77 Feb 9, 2012 flag

Ya sé que no he debido hacerlo, pero le golpeé. Sin embargo, lo mereció.

With Cogumela's corrections:

Ya sé que no debería haberlo hecho, pero le golpeé. Sin embargo, se lo merecía .

I know I shouldn't have done it, but I hit him. However, he did deserve it.

  • lo golpeó - Jeremias Feb 9, 2012 flag
  • Jeremias, I think you are right about the tense, but wrong about the conjunction. I think it should be golpeé. - billygoat Feb 10, 2012 flag
  • Verrrry good! Ya sé que no debería haberlo hecho, pero le/lo golpeé. Sin embargo, se lo merecía . Excellent, Billy! :) - cogumela Feb 10, 2012 flag

It is dangerous for an airplane to hit a bird, and the more birds, the more danger.

Con correcciones (¡gracias a Cogumela!):

Golpear un pájaro es peligroso para un avión. Y cuantos más golpee, (tanto) más peligroso es.

Original:

Es peligroso para un avión golpear un pájaro y cuantos más, cuantos más peligro.

alt text

  • Golpear un pájaro es peligroso para un avión. Y cuantos más golpee, (tanto) más peligroso es. The tanto is optional, I changed the word order in the first part just for naturality, not because it's incorrect. Well done, Pesta! :) - cogumela Feb 10, 2012 flag

A mother talking to her son:

''I told you that if you hit your adopted sister you would (will) come off worse and there would be tears, didn't I!''

=Una madre hablando con su hijo

''¡Te dije que si golpeas a tu hermana adoptiva saldrás mal parado que (o de?) su hermana y al fin alguna persona romperá de llorar, no es verdad?''

Editor's notes: There would be tears: ie: and at the end someone will burst into tears! Some English phrases can be very tricky to translate because they require looking past the surface meaning to understand the implied meaning! This is not usually meaningful in word for word constructions!

I'd rather not get hit on my back when I am choking.

Prefiero que no me golpeen la espalda cuando me atraganto.

  • "I'd rather not get hit on my back when I am choking." - or could use "on the back" equally well as said in Spanish. - pesta Feb 9, 2012 flag

  • Oops - I seemed to have used pegar instead of golpear. I think pegar is better here, but the wrong word. Or is that only a Mexican usage, pegar = to hit? - Jeremias Feb 9, 2012 flag

Original: Golpeó un cuandrangular ganar el juego.

Corrected: Golpeó/Bateó un cuandrangular para ganar el juego/partido.

He hit a home run to win the game.

  • Hum... cuadrangular? Wait I'm not sure this works... I don't know anything about baseball either... I think the best we can do is to say it the English way: Home run. - cogumela Feb 10, 2012 flag
  • So... I'd say "Golpeó/Bateó un home run para ganar el partido", but again, I have no idea about this vocabulary, although I'm under the impression that cuadrangular woudn't work. Who knows :) Well done! - cogumela Feb 10, 2012 flag
