    Default Proemio

    How would you translate "Proemio"?

    Are you sure of the spelling? Could it be "Premio"?

    Premio = prize, jackpot, reward, premium

    Hi Vicente, thanks for posting
    No it's definitely PROEMIO

    The closest I could find was "PREAMBLE"

    OK. It means "proem" which in turn means "preface or introduction"

    Se llama proemio al preludio de un canto, exordio de un discurso o preámbulo de una obra. Es un término cercano al de prólogo.

    I would use "preámbulo" but it depends on your context.

    Hope it helps

    Jworley, it certainly means the beginning or opening of something like text, song, play, etc...prolog, introduction, preface, prelude, preamble

    You might have the correct word in "preamble" depending on the context (as denielad says).
