    Default How did you find us? en Español

    How would this best be translated in Spanish:

    How did you find us? or what would be better, How did you locate us?

    This is referring to a web page.

    Thanks.

    ¿Cómo supo de nosotros?

    ¿Cómo se dió cuenta de nosotros/nuestro sitio?

    Just confirming David's suggestion but I wanted to point out that generally you ask
    "How did you find us?"
    referring to a web site (this also applies to facilities)...the Spanish question would be
    "Cómo nos encontró/ halló?" o "Cómo supo de nosotros?"

    I agree with David's suggestions. I only add that I would prefer the third one "¿Cómo nos localizó?"

    Just wanted to comment that when you usually say "locate" is because you had previous reference about it. You locate an address, a restaurant, for example, but you knew about it before.

    Normally, the question on the website would be "find", because that is what they want to know and that is why I suggested either "Cómo supo de nosotros" because maybe the reference came from somebody else or "Cómo nos encontró" because maybe they found the site through a link or googling...

    I have worked a few times with web sites and that is the question we post.
