In this sentence, "Esta leyenda trata de dos meteorólogos de la Universidad...." the "trata de dos" is confusing me and I'm not sure how this is interpreted. I know "tratar de" to be "to try to" so, when I'm reading this sentence, to me, it's "This legend tries to two meteorologists of the university..." - is this correct? gracias, Incógnito
Algo trata de.... = Something is about... Se trata de... = it's about... (that "it" refers to something previously mentioned)
This legend is about two meteorologists of the university. Look #8 here:
I should have referred to the dictionary first - "Tratar de" also means "to deal with" (is about) which makes sense when I read it. Gracias amigos.
The close translation would be "This legend treats two meteorologists ..." or, more normally, This legend is about two meteorologists ..."
