English to Spanish Bilingual dictionary

Hello fellow forum users, I attend a Spanish-speaking unit in the US. In just about all of them, there is someone (a spouse, a visitor, etc.) who needs interpretation, usually Spanish to English. When stake conference rolls around, the language usually switches and we go English to Spanish. However,...

Re: Accents on Hispanic names in Spanish units

While place of birth might be a good predictor, what I'm saying is that you can't make assumptions about what it should be. Nor would it be wise to make assumptions about how the member wants it to look. In Spanish, accent placement is yea yea or nay nay. There is no assuming and there is no, "...

Re: Accents on Hispanic names in Spanish units

So, just to make sure I understand, if I know they're from another country, I should write the name the way it would be written correctly in that country? For example, say we have a member from Perú whose last name is Dominguez in the system. I know for a fact that it is really Domínguez since Spani...

Re: Niño no registrado

En efecto, el secretario aún puede ingresar la información y crear las cédulas de miembro. Llévele nomás toda la información que se sepa de la bendición (la persona que efectuó la bendición, su oficio en el sacerdocio, la fecha, etc.) y él gustosamente lo ayudará.

Accents on Hispanic names in Spanish units

Hello fellow forum users, I'm a branch clerk for a US Spanish branch. I'm also a Spanish proofreader and translator by profession. Recently, I was told to keep our records (and names on records) as accurate as possible in a stake training. I approached the stake clerk about the numerous accents and ...

Re: Personal Progress online / out-of-unit YW President

Thank you very much for your rapid responses. I've reported it. Hopefully I did it right (it's my first time). I'm not sure exactly how the out-of-member record policies go, but it gets complicated since our branch covers so many different stakes, as do many Spanish branches in the US. Occasionally,...
