    Default Led

    How would translate Light-emitting diode (LED) to Spanish?

    LED or led

    Thank you

    Hi Kane,

    LED = diodo emisor de luz.

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks Sara.

    Another doubt.
    The spelling of acronyms calls for capital letters, therefore; in this case, it should be LED. However, I have often seen it as “led”. What I do not know, and I was not able to confirm, is if the RAE now considers it a name like it does with “láser”, in such a case it would be spelled “led”

    I am not sure what the RAE suggests in this case, but I believe it should stay capitalized and stick to the rule for acronyms. Good luck!

    Que yo sepa no se traduce. De hecho en buceo hay muchas linternas de LED
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."


    El Corán (libro sagrado de los musulmanes, recitado por Alá a Maomé en el siglo VI)

    Hey, girls! I usually translate it as "diodo emisor de luz (LED)" the first time in the text and then use just LED.

    Hope you find it useful!
