Requests for English example sentences[edit]

As translators encounter ambiguous definitions, they should be added here, so that a native English speaker (or admin, or somebody) can enhance the entry, specifically with better example sentences. When an example has been added, please indicate it with a brief comment such as * '''Added.''' ~~~~ so further clarification can be requested if needed. This can happen for any word that needs to get translated, but typically, this pertains to entries that have pending translations to be checked.

IMPORTANT: this section may soon be deprecated in deference to {{rfex}}. --01:25, 26 January 2007 (UTC)

translate english to espanol (spanish)[edit]

memory remain unchanged, faces no longer be mentioned!

translate to espanol will be? —This comment was unsigned.

I'm very sorry, but that isn't a grammatically correct sentence in English. In particular, guessing a first word for the first clause (Though, My, Your,) changes the possible meanings profoundly. Can you give more context of what you are asking for? --Connel MacKenzie 01:32, 27 July 2007 (UTC)
Las memorias continúan sin cambiar, las caras ya no se mencionan. —Stephen 01:38, 27 July 2007 (UTC)

Unless the requester made a mistake, 1. It's grammatically correct and 2. You're both misunderstanding it. He's using subjunctive/third person imperative, poetically. If you'd like, put the word "may" or "let" at the beginning. The translation here is indicative, and therefore incorrect; I'm not fluent in Spanish, but I think it should be: "¡la memoria continúe sin cambiar, caras ya no se mencionen!"
