    Default Quick Simple Translations?

    Good Morning!

    I am doing an assignment where I have to describe a picture and what the person in the picture is wearing or doing. I am describing a soccer picture. How would I say shin guards, cleats, and jersey in Spanish?

    This is what I want to translate:

    This is my favorite soccer player Abby Wombach. She is wearing a gold jersey. Her cleats are as gold as her jersey. She has blue shorts on, with a white number twenty on the left side. Her socks are also blue. Under her socks are her shin guards, which protect her shins. There is a small white stripe on her jersey. Also there is a white stripe and gold stripe on the socks. Here hair is pulled back, and she is going to shoot the ball.


    I know the third sentence is "tan oro como" for as gold as. Any other help anyone would like to offer? Thank you

    hi!!

    Here are my suggestions:

    shin guards: canilleras

    cleats: botines

    jersey: camiseta

    I have to tell you that these options are from Argentina. I'm 100% sure that, depending on the flavour you need, the word change... Please tell us what Spanish would be more adecuate, and we'll try to help you...

    Yes, if you are from the US, you probably need Mexican Spanish...

    The suggested translations are:

    shin guards: espinilleras

    cleats: botines de fútbol

    jersey: camisola

    And two possible translations for as gold as could be:

    "sus botines son tan dorados como su camisola"

    "...son del mismo color dorado que el de su camisola".

    I hope I could help you!!!

    For "jersey" you can use the same word for Mexican Spanish. Another one is "casaca de futbol" (or football), also regularly used in Spanish US.
