    Default translation from english to spanish

    A Quinceanera is similar to a sweet sixteen party here in United States, except it’s celebrated at 16 not 15. As I learned about it, it sounded a lot like a wedding. The young lady wears a dress, she has her court, and they dance, eat, and party.


    can someone translate the above text in Spanish for me?

    aquí mi versión de la traducción.

    Un quinceañero es parecido a la fiesta de los 16 aquí en los Estados Unidos, a excepción que se celebra a los 16 y no a los 15. He aprendido que es casi como una boda. La joven usa un vestido, tiene una escolta, y bailan, comen y festejan.

    Hi dmaksimov. This is my proposed translation.
    Hope it helps

    Una fiesta de quince años es similar a la celebración de los "sweet sixteen" aquí en los Estados Unidos, excepto que aquí la celebración es a los 16 y no a los 15. Según lo que he aprendido al respecto, esta celebración se asemeja a una boda. La joven luce un traje, tiene un cortejo, y las personas bailan, comen y festejan

    Me gusta la versión de Hebe. En algunos lugares a la fiesta se le dice "un cumpleaños de quince".

    I don`t think it is proper to ask for the translation of a whole paragraph.

    We are here to help each other in difficult terms, doubts, but not to do your job or get somebody a free translation.

    Un cumpleaños de 15 es similar a la fiesta de "los dulces 16" en los Estados Unidos, salvo que se festeja a los 16 y no a los 15. Según lo que averigüé se parece mucho a un casamiento. La damita luce un vestido, tiene su cortejo y bailan, comen y celebran.

    hi im a musician and im playing at a wedding where half the audiance is spanish and would appricate if someone could translate these songs for me
    please please please!!!!

    1) needle in the hay- elliot smith

    Your hand on his arm
    Haystack charm around your neck
    Strung out and thin
    Calling some friend, trying to cash some check
    He's acting dumb
    That's what you've come to expect
    Needle in the hay
    Needle in the hay
    Needle in the hay
    Needle in the hay
    He's wearing your clothes
    Head down to toes, a reaction to you
    You say you know what he did
    But you idiot kid, you don't have a clue
    Sometimes they just get caught in the eye, you're pulling him through
    Needle in the hay
    Needle in the hay
    Needle in the hay
    Needle in the hay
    Now on the bus
    Nearly touching this dirty retreat
    Falling out 6th and powell, a dead sweat in my teeth
    Gonna walk walk walk
    Four more blocks, plus the one in my brain
    Down downstairs to the man, he's gonna make it all okay
    I can't beat myself
    I can't beat myself
    And I don't want to talk
    I'm taking the cure
    So I can be quiet wherever I want
    So leave me alone
    You ought to be proud that I'm getting good marks
    Needle in the hay
    Needle in the hay
    Needle in the hay
    Needle in the hay

    2) first day of my life- bright eyes
    This is the first day of my life
    I swear I was born right in the doorway
    I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
    They're spreading blankets on the beach

    Yours is the first face that I saw
    I think I was blind before I met you
    Now I don’t know where I am
    I don’t know where I’ve been
    But I know where I want to go

    And so I thought I’d let you know
    That these things take forever
    I especially am slow
    But I realize that I need you
    And I wondered if I could come home

    Remember the time you drove all night
    Just to meet me in the morning
    And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
    You felt as if you'd just woke up
    And you said “this is the first day of my life
    I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
    But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
    And I’d probably be happy”

    So if you want to be with me
    With these things there’s no telling
    We just have to wait and see
    But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
    Than waiting to win the lottery
    Besides maybe this time is different
    I mean I really think you like me


    3)cant stand me now- the libertines

    An ending fitting for the start
    You twist and tore our love apart
    Your light fingers threw the dart
    Shattered the lamp into darkness it cast us...

    No, you've got it the wrong way round
    Just shocked me up and blamed it on the brown
    Cornered the boy kicked out at the world,
    The world kicked back a lot fuckin' harder...

    If you wanna try, If you wanna try
    There's no worse you could do (oh oh oh)
    I know you lie, I know you lie
    I'm still in love with you (oh oh oh)

    Can't take me anywhere (I'll take you anywhere)
    You can't take me anywhere (I can't take you anywhere)
    I'll take you anywhere you wanna go!

    Oh, you can't stand me now (No, you can't stand me now)
    You can't stand me now (Oh, you can't stand me now)
    You can't stand me now (No, you can't stand me now)
    You can't stand me now,
    You can't stand me now!

    Have we enough to keep it together?
    Or do we just keep on pretending
    And hope our luck is never ending
    You tried to pull the wool, I wasn't feeling too clever
    And you take all that they're lending
    Until you needed mending...

    If you wanna try, If you wanna try
    there's no worse you could do (oh oh oh)
    I know you lie, all you do is make me cry
    And all these words they aint true (oh oh)

    I can't take me anywhere (I can't take you anywhere)
    You can't take me anywhere (I'll take you anywhere)
    I'll take you anywhere you wanna go!

    Oh, you can't stand me now (No, you can't stand me now)
    You can't stand me now (Oh, you can't stand me now)
    You can't stand me now (No, you can't stand me now)
    You can't stand me now (No, you can't stand me now)
    You can't stand me now!
    You can't stand me now!
    You can't stand me now!
    No, you can't stand me now!
    You can't stand me now!
    You can't stand me now!
    No, you can't stand me now!

    thank you!!!!!!!!
