    Hola,

    Estoy oyendo la radio española a através de internet para que se me ocurran frases a traduducir, para coger más agilidad a la hora de traducir y hablar. Pero me gustaría saber si las traducciones son correctas.

    gracias.

    “Si usas este producto aumentarás tu fuerza y tu Resistencia para hacer deporte”
    “I f you use this product you increase your strength and resist to doing sport.”

    “Necesito comer ahora mucha grasa por que quiero ganar peso.”
    “I now need to eat fat becouse I want to put on weigh.”

    “El reciclaje vino de EEUU donde allí se puede hacer muy bien por que las casas son muy grandes, pero aquí es más difícil ya que las casas son más pequeñas.”

    Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions:

    “I was walking down the street when a man suddenly jumped from the dark and threatened me with a knife.” 1) 'along' is not incorrect, but 'down' is more common in this phrase. 2) Verb congruency

    “If you use this product, you will increase your strength and endurance in sports.”

    Now I need to eat a lot of fat because I want to gain weigh.” 'Put on weight' is an idiom usually used when it's not on purpose. As in 'I've put on some weight since I graduated collage' or 'I put on some baby weight'

    “Recycling is originally from the USA where it can be done correctly because houses are very big. But it’s more difficult here because houses are smaller.” Can also use 'since' instead of 'because'

    Negociations are on the right track since a high increase in the company’s future sales is expected”
