Se fuerza la maquina
Is this an expression, se fuerza la máquina ?
I saw it translated in a movie as "you strain yourself" which doesn't make sense to me?
Forzar la máquina: put strain on your body, to make an effort
And yes, good sentence for the phrasebook, quesito
It means, The machine is forced/strained.
I don't know if this have something to do with your question, but there is a nice song called "Se fuerza la máquina".
