    Question Hello everyone, I would greatly appreciate your help with this translation!

    It was spoken by a Dominican and I've tried all the online translation machines and they just can't get it right! Thank you again for your time and help!!
    Here it is:

    "Ella no friega ni mapea ni presta su batea si estudia en la escuela ahh ahh como? No espere nota buena Lo de ella es fronteo, baile, y gozadera."

    Egad. I can’t read it either. Maybe a Dominican will show up. I’ll make a stab at it just for your amusement: “She’s just standing in the way for no reason. So she’s going to study? Right. She sure isn’t looking for good grades. What she’d get out of it is a good time “.

    Notice I skirted around exactly what kind of a good time. I can’t find fronteo even in a Dominican dictionary.

    Unfortunately no, there were no accents used, it was in a text message just as you see it.

    I'm not from Domincan Republic but this sounds to me as a lyric to a song (maybe reggaeton?). I wouldn't know how to translate it accurately, but the gist of it would be:
    "she's not interested in cleaning, she goes to school but won't get good grades, her thing is dancing and having fun".

    Something like that :-)

    Hope it helps!

    Here's a good link for fronteo: ¿Pregunta para los de Puerto Rico / República Dominicana o para quien sepa? - Yahoo! Respuestas

    It amuses me because she says she's not even sure herself what it means. There are modismos in English I think of in the same way. But I think I'd translate it as hanging out, going out, or flirting from what she says.
