    Welcome Cheesetorian. That's an excellent topic.
    I can only understand a few words in Spanish. Do you get it from this link? Maybe the creators of the website can help you too.

    I'm currently trying to decipher an old Tagalog dictionary and one of the entries stumped me because its very technical, I am wondering if any of you people can help me.

    It's as follows:

    "Agráz : Iba pc : de la tierra, rutilla agria y blanca, con un gueseçillo dentro, conservada pareçe gindi en conserva, ybaan mo ang la oya, hecha agraz en la olla."

    Salamat/Gracias in advanced,

    Let me try this: "...dilute it as it is customary, that is, to add half a ganta of water to two gantas of a youthful wine, in order to tone it down..." You can later add a Note from the Translator with the equivalent metrics (1 ganta = 3.17 US qts.)
