    Default Trick or Treat?

    Now that I'm in a Halloween Mode, How do you translate Trick or Treat?

    Truco o Treta? any better suggestion?

    Yo lo traduciría como regalo (treat) o castigo. Trambien podría ser "golosina o castigo", . Entiendo que la persona que no le regale a los niños una golosina recibirán un castigo (travesura)

    I'm going with Hebe's "regalo o castigo". It rolls off the tongue so nicely!

    In most of the movies I have seen, the phrase is translated as "dulce o truco", but sincerely, it doesn't have sense for me. May be "dulce o travesura" is better.

    Default Trato o Truco

    Doy un voto por "trato o truco". En este tipo de traducción de frases, es muy importante mantener un cierto paralelismo con la rima del original. Si bien no siempre puede ser idéntico - obviamente - mantener algún tipo de rima es importante.
