    Need help with Spanish to English conversion

    I tried a few on line sites but had no luck.
    I sell industrial hydraluic equipment and parts and I have had some guy from Mexico send me a request. I have some of it figured out but need help on a little more. I will also need someone to translate my english quote to him into spanish.
    Any help would be appriciated.
    Thanks,
    Kirk

    Not everything can be translated, exspecially when it come to technical stuff. I have tried the online translaters and even ask people around the shop. I get Pemex in Mexico asking me about camera's LOL.

    Remember when talking in spanish... they talk backwards..

    English..."Are you going to the store?"

    Spanish..."Vato's going to the store, no?

    English... "Move your damn car out of my way"

    Spanish..."Your car is in da way, so move it you Huotou".

    The site worked well. I did not even think about the backwards thing.
    What pisses me off is I translated my response and sent back to him, and 30 minutes later the guy calls me and spoke great english.
    He called to cry about $100.00 in freight charges. A$$hole.

    Double the price, and tell him you will start to send it to him in 3 weeks...minimum.l
