    Default Hoping for some help!!

    Hello,

    I just signed up here in the hopes of using this site as a tool to help me with my job. I work for a major retailer of everyday products and in my job, I have to code certain items depending on what they are. However, we are beginning to carry alot of Hispanic items and the descriptions are coming to us in Spanish. I have tried to look these items up, but am not getting anywhere. I thought I'd give this site a try!

    Can anyone help with any of the following? (these descriptions are all I have to go on)

    rompe pecho
    MIELIN MAS
    RABANO YODADO
    SANCOCHITO
    UNTO ALCANFOR
    JARABE BERRO SYRUP
    MANTECA LA UBRE LA GENUINA
    DUY ANTIGUITO
    DUY BRONCOTO
    DUY KOLA CARDINETTENO
    MAS PIOJOS


    Any help you can give me with any of these products would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

    Thanks,
    Michelle

    Michelle,

    Dragona has given you correct translations but most of these are brand name products. Here is my list.

    rompe pecho - A type of cough syrup
    MIELIN MAS - A type of candy sweetened with honey
    RABANO YODADO – A patent medicine with many claimed uses (expectorant, goiter disease, etc.)
    SANCOCHITO – herbal medicine for skin treatment
    UNTO ALCANFOR – Unto de Alcanfor is also a skin treatment medicine
    JARABE BERRO SYRUP – herbal medicine for the liver and kidneys
    MANTECA LA UBRE LA GENUINA – real butter


    I can’t help you with these:

    DUY ANTIGUITO
    DUY BRONCOTO
    DUY KOLA CARDINETTENO



    MAS PIOJOS – Are you sure this is not “NO MAS PIOJOS” there is a lice shampoo by this name


    Hope this helps.

    Joel

    That is correct in that they are brand name products. I think these products come to us in Spanish packaging and that's the way they enter them in the system. However, they don't realize that we need to know what they are in order to properly process them in my department.


    Thank you Joel!!

    It probably is!! It's in an "Ethnic Haircare" category and we do carry stuff like that.

    Let's just hope we never need to use it !

    Thanks for the description Joel. I thought about writing them down but was busy with tons of other things so I just translated each one I could. Thanks for taking the time to send a description!!

    I am using Manteca La Ubre La Genuina, It helps for aches on back, arms, hands and legs and other joints on body. Keep away from eyes. It is like a salve or "Bengay" to rub on acheing areas.
