    Default help!!!!!

    Hi...how would you translate the following paragraph?..

    Esta rutina retorna el saldo de la cuenta corriente de la póliza, para una fecha determinada. Si la póliza pertenece a la clase de producto Premium, la rutina calcula el saldo de la cuenta sumando el producto de las unidades disponibles por su precio respectivo.

    Here's what I thought:

    This routine returns the current account balance of the policy in a given date. If the policy belongs to the product class "Premium", the routine calculates the balance of the account by adding the product of the availables units multiplied by its own price.

    Is it correct???

    Thanks

    It's not clear to me what you add the product of the units multiplied by the unit price to. To the current balance to get a new balance?

    Thanks Mariaklec!...I didn't understand that either... I think the thing is that there are different units and different unit prices related to the same account so after multiplying each of them, the routine add all these results up to get the total balance....so... this is what i came up with:

    This routine returns the balance of the current account for a given date. If the policy belongs to the type of product "Premium", the routine calculates the balance of the account multiplying the available units by the unit price and then adding these results.

    By the way, the name of the product is Premium....

    What do you think?

    If premium is the name of the product I would say:
    If the policy is a Premium policy... (you would want to use the full name of the particular policy with capital letters as appropriate)

    I think I get it now:
    ...the routine calculates the balance of the account by multiplying each unit price by the number of units available at that price, and then adding these results together.

    ...the routine calculates the balance of the account by adding together the products of each group of available units multiplied by it's respective price.

    (I like the first suggestion better.)
