Well, I can understand your version better than the English version (not a very good reflection on the English sentence) -- maybe you should offer your services to the Costa-Rican resorts! (ha ha)

I don´t want to hijack the thread but I´d very much like to hear opinions about the relative merits (if merits there be) of saying "muchos de vosotros sabéis ..." in this sentence.

I think she meant she didn't consider the English version catchy.

Ah, got it. My bad.

I think she meant she didn't consider the English version catchy. A matter of opinion, of course.

I agreed with you Natasha. I have brought this up too.

What do you mean? You have brought up what?

It doesn't translate the concept of the article too well. And it's difinitely not catchy.

I specifically said it wasn't supposed to be catchy. I was trying to give a basic translation so that someone else could provide a better copy version.

OK, thanks for clearing that up. You may think this is very funny, but the English version was missing a hyphen which actually confused me, because it made it seem like "footprint resort" went together.

Discover which of Costa Rica's tiny-footprint resorts have big-deal spas"

James Santiago said:

I just have to say that the subtitle sounds really funny in English. Does anyone understand it'

Yes, perfectly. It's actually a good title (as ad copy goes). It is aimed at "green" customers who want to patronize resorts that are environmentally friendly and also have great spas. I interpret "big-deal" here as in "Those spas are a big deal," i.e., very substantial or important.

One problem is that the translation has to distinguish between resort and spa, both of which can be rendered as balneario. I would be tempted to translate resort as hotel here.

Although I can't write Spanish copy, the basic meaning in Spanish would be something like this:

Discubre cuál de los hoteles costarriquenses tienen muy poco impacto ambiental mientras tienen balenarios fantásticos.

James Santiago said:

"Discover which of Costa Rica's tiny footprint resorts have big-deal spas"Translations of copy such as this are very difficult, because you can't just do a literal translation. The English here is making a little joke by contrasting tiny with big, but it would be difficult to make the same contrast of adjectives in Spanish without modifying the meaning a bit.This one is beyond my skill level, so I'll leave it to a native speaker.

What do you think of these options? Which one would be better...

"Descubra cuales grandes complejos turisticos en costa Rica ofrecen servicios ecologicos."

"Descubra cuales grandes complejos turisticos en costa Rica ofrecen servicios que no afectan el medio ambiente."

"Descubra cuales grandes complejos turisticos en costa Rica ofrecen servicios que no afectan la ecologia"
