    Default Help with Spanish Translation

    There was a sign on a building in Madrid that read the following.

    En estas casas fundo Santa Teresa, en Mayo de 1569.
    El convento de Carmelitas Descalzas de San Jose y fue trasladado en 1570.

    Can someone please help translate it?

    Thanks!

    Hey amayo, how are you doing??
    First of all, what you write could be misundestood, because you divided wrongly the paragraphs.
    Lets see. You write:

    En estas casas fundo Santa Teresa, en Mayo de 1569.
    El convento de Carmelitas Descalzas de San Jose y fue trasladado en 1570.


    What is actually wrong in there, is the final dot before "de 1569
    .".
    That dot is telling that the sentence is over, but it is not, it continues with "El Convento de..."

    So, here is how it should look like.

    En estas casas fundo Santa Teresa, en Mayo de 1569 el Convento de Carmelitas Descalzas de San Jose y fue trasladado en 1570.

    An the translation might be something like

    In May of 1569 Santa Teresa established the Convento de Carmelitas Descalzas de San Jose in this houses, but later in 1570 it was moved.

    Thats how I suppose it should be, if a translator reads it maybe itīll do some corrections.
