    Default "Teacher Spanish"

    Could anyone give some advice with how best to translate the word "slip" in phrases such as "detention slip," "permission slip," "referral slip," etc. It's not "aviso"; not "anuncio," and saying "hoja de..." doesn't do it for me. Thanks. JM

    There are many possibilities:

    nota de...
    carta de...
    boleta de...
    talón de...
    hoja de...

    Hope it helps!

    Some more:

    formulario de ..

    permission slip: autorización (firmada)/ permiso (firmado)

    pay slip: nómina

    packing slip: albarán (de entrega)

    Si nos das el contexto.....
    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)

    I have been looking for a spanish-english glossary for educational topics. A collection of sources for translating diplomas, syllabi, things like the above, etc. but have had no luck. Any ideas?
