    Question Writers block, please help!



    Hola!

    I am writing a book and need a Spanish translation for
    • 'Caught', as in 'I caught him with someone else', and
    • 'Honey Trap'
    Any help would be very much appreciated!

    Muchas gracias

    How about atrapar, descubrir or encontrar?

    The second one would be trampa, I think.

    "Lo sorprendí con otra" o "lo descubrí con otra"

    Y para "honey trap", qué tál si nos brindas un poco más de contexto? No conozco la expresión en inglés.

    Saludos

    What about trampa de miel?
    It's sweet but at the end it's a trap anyway...I think I have heard something like that, perhaps not those very same words but similar.

    caught: atrapado, sorprendido...
    Realmente, el destino del mundo depende, en primer lugar, de los estadistas y, en segundo lugar, de los intérpretes.

    A honeytrap (usually spelled as one word) refers to a seducer such as "Delilah was Samson's honeytrap". You could use seductor(ora).

    To give El Detective's definition a little more context, there's this article:
