    Default Lingo?

    I am working on a video game called (in English) Planet Lingo. So how would this translate? Planeta Jerga? Planeta de Jerga? Is there a word other than jerga that might sound better? (The meaning doesn't have to be exactly the same.)

    Hi Michael

    "Planeta Jerga" is the correct rendering. I agree with you that "jerga" doesn't sound half as good as "lingo" (a beautifully sounding word in English). An option is just to be flexible with the meaning and go for something wild, like "Planeta Chévere".

    Cheers.

    Chévere! That's just what I was looking for. I didn't know this word before, but (as you know) it means "cool, awesome" and it sounds great with Planeta. Also, it appears to have pretty wide usage in Latin America, which is my target audience at this point. Thanks so much, pabloa.
