    Default Sewage underground lines

    Dear translators...

    how would you translate "sewage underground lines"...? "Conductos de desague subterráneos"? or "cloaca" instead of "desague"???

    cheers

    Default Desague

    I would use desague. That is what I have always heard it called when talking about sewage.

    Good luck

    Default Aguas residuales

    Hi, you can write "líneas de aguas residuales".

    Yes, and (in Spain's Spanish at least) you could say "alcantarillado" too

    no it is not possible to translate it as "acueducto", because it is not water supply, it should be "alcantarillado", but there are some extra words <<underground lines>>

    Default that's right!

    correct interpretation! , because in this case it is hardly difficult to establish a literal translation, since in developing countries sewage has different designs and architectural styles.
