    Question Estimate

    How would you translate "I need a written estimate." The word "estimacion' just does not sound right. thanks

    If you are talking about an amount, you could say "quiero un monto estimado por escrito" or "quiero un estimado del monto por escrito",

    Hope it helps

    En España usamos la palabra presupuesto en el contexto.

    Necesito un presupuesto por escrito.

    Thanks. I was not sure about monto. Also, I thought "Presupuesto" was a translation for "Budget." Thanks again.

    In fact ; presupuesto is a translation for budget; and I do not think it is the word you are looking for. In Venezuela we use the word “cotización” (quote or price listing) . However I did not suggest it because when you ask for a cotización you are not asking for an estimate (approximate price), but for the exact price the establishment is going to charge. In fact, establishments are obliged to maintain the prices they give you in a quote for a certain reasonable period, even if the prices have changed at the time the transaction takes place.

    Hi! "Presupuesto" is one posible translation for "estimate". It could also be translated as: cálculo aproximado, valoración, juicio.

    Regards,

    Coincido con exxxcentrica y Mirta: "presupuesto por escrito" me parece la mejor opción. Suerte!

    la verdad es que por curiosear revisé decenas de definisiones de presupuesto y ninguna de ajusta a este caso en fin veremos que otras opiniones llegan

    Hola Humberto, ¿a qué caso te refieres? El postor no ha dado contexto, así que presuposto me parece adecuado. También puede ser valoración, desde luego, si se trata de ponerle precio, un suponer , a un coche o una casa.
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."
