    Default "Get Heartburn Smart"

    Hi, everybody.

    I'm having troubles with this phrase. It's the title of a handbook for heartburn (acidez) and strategies to prevent and deal with it.
    It's supposed to be neutral Spanish. I was thinking of "avivarse", but it may be too colloquial for this. Can anyone lend me a hand?

    Thanks!

    What about "Infórmate sobre la acidez" or "Todo lo que hay que saber sobre la acidez"?

    Hmmm...Gánele a la acidez...this one is a tuffy...titles need to be catchy and this is the moment where a good translator (whatever that means!!) takes risks and comes up with an equivalent expression in the second language, rather than the direct translation from the original.

    Goodluck with that!

    Thanks Cotty" I've already delivered it with a very dull but clear title (hehe), but I'll take it into account for the next time!
