comment How to decide between “ahora” and “ya” for the sense “now”?
For example "Estoy occupado actualmente" would mean "I'm currently busy", while "Estoy occupado ahora" would mean "I'm busy right now". But on the other hand "Ahora vivo en Madrid" would be equivalent to "Actualmente vivo en Madrid" (later sounding more formal).
