    Hi everybody, im in a urgent need of help. I need help to translate a spanish News for a project we have in our school, im kinda bad in translation from spanish to english, so plz help me quick!, Heres the news:

    Agentes de la Policía Nacional han desarticulado un grupo organizado de ciudadanos chinos en la operación más importante realizada en España contra la piratería audiovisual, según fuentes policiales. Después de más de tres meses de investigaciones, se ha logrado detener a los seis integrantes de esta organización, cinco hombres y una mujer, y localizar los tres almacenes del grupo en Leganés y un centro de duplicación y montaje ubicado en Arganda del Rey, todos ellos en la provincia de Madrid.

    Entre los efectos intervenidos se encuentran más de 155.000 soportes digitales (cd y dvd), algunos vírgenes y otros ya grabados, y 20 torres politostadoras, con un total de 240 bocas grabadoras que permitían a la organización disponer de unas 80.000 copias piratas al día. Se estima que los detenidos podrían obtener unos ingresos diarios cercanos a los 240.000 euros con la venta de todas las unidades.

    Hi, XZone, if this is for school, we generally like to see you give it a shot first. Then we will help you correct it. But we like to see students try their hand at translation instead of receiving it all at once. Sound good?

    Hi! I agree with ScottJ. I think you should give a try but if you can't or if you don't have the time, you should give it to a translator to do that job because it is a long and difficult article.

    Regards,

    This was a very good translation, and I have made my changes, which by no means are Gospel. The last paragraph is a bit tricky, requiring a bit of research into the Spanish police system. I apologize for not taking the time to mark the changes better, but you can cross-check it with what you sent and then ask questions or make comments on my recommendations. Again, I wish I had more time to dedicate to that last paragraph, and hopefully someone who is more familiar with the Spanish police can give a hand on that last paragraph. (Also a good way to get the Spanish criminals on here to reveal themselves...)

    Agents of the National Police have dismantled an organized group of Chinese citizens in the most important operation conducted in Spain against audio-visual piracy, according to police sources. After more than three months of investigation, the six members of this organization have been apprehended, five men and one woman, and the three warehouses of the group in Leganés and a center of duplication and assembly in Arganda del Rey have all been located, all of them in the province of Madrid.

    Among the confiscated effects, there are more than 155,000 digital devices (CD and DVD), some blank and others already recorded on, and 20 politostadoras towers (I think these are towers that can burn many copies of a CD or DVD at the same time, but I don't know the official name in English), with a total of 240 recording heads that allowed the organization to produce 80,000 pirated copies per day. It is estimated that the prisoners could obtain a daily income of around 240,000 Euros through the sale of all the units.
    The operation, named Bird, has been conducted by the Crime Group against the Intellectual and Industrial Property of UDEV-Central, pertaining to the General Station of the Judicial Police, in collaboration with the Brigade of Judicial Police of Madrid.

    Xzone, it is very rude that you should be so disrespectful to post a Babel fish translation without at least trying to improve it.

    Please, scotty, have a go, the exact words! Very rude in my opinion. Especially calming that "i really thought i had screwed it up with my translation", he did it himself.

    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."
