    Default English Puns

    Are you able to translate English puns into other languages?

    For example. I'm a little "chile" with a photo of a bowl of chile beside it.

    Is there anyway to translate that into Spanish?

    I don't get the pun Amayo.

    Maybe if it were "I'm a little chilly" with a tiny bowl of chili beside it.

    It's a document sent my a client. It has these kinds of puns but we don't have access to the pictures. I can't figure out if it is something I can provide for my client.

    Kinda hard to translate something without full context and possible errors in spelling, no? Anyway, puns that play on words are likely to be nonsensical in a translation.

    Yes, tell me about it. I think you're right though. I'm going to have to break the news to my client gently.

    Thanks for the input
