There are a few things I’d like to learn in Spanish for work, is anyone willing to help? Preferably over Skype so I can get a feel for the pronounciation, but reblogs are alright too.
No google translate, please, I could do that myself.
- Invalid PIN.
- Try again.
- The card isn’t good.
- I like your [shirt / jacket / earrings / hair / makeup]
- Do you have anything under the cart.
- I can come around to scan that.
- Do you have your card with you?
- I can’t accept a phone number, but I can put the store card in for you.
- Do you need that in a bag?
- Have a good day / have a good night.
- Have a good holiday.
- Good morning / good evening.
My friend says:
I’m giving you 1) Mexican Spanish and 2) generally formal forms, I hope that’s okay.
1) Su NIP no es valido/es incorrecto
2) Por favor intente de nuevo
3)[What do you mean by ‘good’? I’m giving you ‘doesn’t work’, since it looks like you mean a credit card] Su tarjeta no funciona/no esta funcionando
4) Me gusta su [camisa / chaleco] / sus aretes / su peinado / I usually don’t hear ‘makeup’ in general, sorry, in the area I grew up in that compliment’s usually delivered as ‘who did your makeup’ instead
5) Tiene algo debajo de su carrito?
6) Puedo pasar a escanearlo.
7) Tiene su tarjeta?
8) No puedo aceptar un numero telefonico, pero si Ud. desea puedo usar la tarjeta de la tienda. [I think? I don’t know enough about your job to know exactly what you’re asking here.]
9) Necesita una bolsa?
10) Que le vaya bien / Buenas noches [I am giving you standard formal farewells, not literal translations. Also, never use ‘buenas noches’ as a greeting, fyi.]
11) Felices fiestas. [Usually used for the December holiday conglomerate.]
12) Buenos dias / Buenas tardes.
Hope this helps!
Signed, your friendly neighborhood Mexican (im-mexican-and.tumblr.com) (No, seriously)
