    Default Spanish Translation for Survey

    I'm doing an informal survey of residents of Jamaica Plain (a neighborhood of Boston) and have had a hard time getting responses from the hispanic residents, so I was thinking I would translate the survey into spanish to make it more accessible.

    Could someone help me translate this questions? Also some general phrases to ask people if they will take my survey would be useful. I can fumble around in spanish alright when I need to, I just want these questiosn to actually have proper grammar and such.

    What is your gender? Male/Female

    What is your age? ______________

    Do you have children? ________________

    If so do (did) they attend Boston Public Schools? ___________________

    How do you feel mayor Menino has done with the issue of crime throughout the city?

    Very Poor Poor OK Good Very Good

    And in Jamaica Plain specifically?

    Very Poor Poor OK Good Very Good

    Are there any aspects you feel he has done particularly bad or good with in regard to crime?
