    Hello! I need help to translate a flyer. These are the phrases:

    1) Could this be you?

    2) No risk

    3) No investment

    4) Free training

    5) Financially solid company

    Muchas gracias

    ¿Tú podrías ser este? With more context this translation could be improved...
    Sin riesgos
    Sin inversiones
    Capacitación/Entrenamiento gratis
    Compañía financieramente sólida

    Sandra T, MariaLaura! Thank you for your replies.

    "Could this be you?" is the title of the flyer.

    "¿Tú podrías ser este?" is what I need. if I want to refer con "usted" will it be "Usted podria ser este?" Is that right?

    Exactly, USTED is fine, it's the formal YOU...

    sounds much better as an affirmative sentence:

    ¡Este podría ser Usted!

    ...got much more power to it!
    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)

    How would you ask this in Spanish: "Are you interested in business opportunity?"
    Thanks again

    try:
    1) sin riesgos
    2) sin inversiones
    3) capacitación sin cargo
    4) Empresa solvente

    This sounds like an HR ad to attract candidates to join a company, am I right?
    If your audience is young, the first sentence should be:
    1) ¿este eres tu? o ¿serás tu?
    if your audience is older, try:
    2) ¿este es usted? o ¿será usted?

    good luck ;-)
