    Default Dentro de...

    Hola, This is my first post and I am quite thrilled. My question is I am trying to say "before long he became caliph in all but name." I am unsure what to do, but I have "Dentro de poco, el se hizó califa pero en todo sin el nombre. Thank you

    Dear Dash,

    this is my attempt:

    EN POCO TIEMPO SE CONVIRTIO TOTALMENTE EN CALIFA, MENOS EN SU NOMBRE.

    It'd be better to have a bit more context.

    regards, Diegonel

    I would delete TOTALMENTE and SU leaving the sentence to read thus:

    "En poco tiempo se convirtió en califa, en todo menos en nombre."

    En poco tiempo llegó a ser califa, en todo (aspecto) menos en nombre.

    Convertirse totalmente en califa (?)
    Menos en su nombre (?)
