Spanish translation of "computer"

Tue Dec 22, 2009 8:43 pm

Hi,

I've gotten a few complaints about the Spanish translation of the word "computer" in the dictionary you provide.

The dictionary translates "computer" to "ordenador" in Spanish, which is the translation specific to Spain. A more appropriate internationalized translation would be the term "computadora" which is used throughout the Spanish-speaking world.

I was able to do some brief research on my own to come up with this information; here is a good discussion (in Spanish)

I am not fluent in Spanish nor am I a language professional, so you may want to consult with your translators before following my advice; however I believe that changing this aspect of the translation is the correct action.

Thanks!

Justin
