comment How do I say ' my cellphone is about to die' in Spanish?
@TomAu: Yes, that's better (although "acaba" is a verb, not a preposition :) )

comment Ring: “anillo” vs “sortija”
The "differences" are apparent from the entries at rae.es. If there is some additional subtlety which confuses you, then a question here is perfectly acceptable and encouraged--but then you need to be asking about the subtle difference. In other words, this question can be interpreted as "Read the dictionary to me." To be sure that's not what you mean, you need to make it clear what information you are seeking that is not in the dictionary.

Excellent job on providing specific context for your question!

comment Ring: “anillo” vs “sortija”
Most questions asking about the definitions of words are indeed off-topic here--same as they are on English Language & Usage. There are however many questions about nuances, or regional differences, which are on-topic here.

comment Ring: “anillo” vs “sortija”
This question appears to be off-topic because it is general reference.

comment Ring: “anillo” vs “sortija”
The differences between the 4 words you've mentioned should be explained in the dictionary. Did you start there? If you stil have questions, please be specific about your doubts, or the context in which you are looking for the proper word.

comment Gender agreement with “fin de semana”
I was trying to provide an answer to your question, and realized I didn't even know part of the answer I was trying to provide, so I asked a followup question.

comment “old car” slang
¿Usted está buscando una lista de términos alternativos para "old car", o está preguntando si "una dama vivida" es un termino correcto en El Salvador?

comment ¿Qué significa “por” en el eslogan “Es por ti”?
As you can imagine, on a web site about Spanish, translations into English are off-topic. If your real question is "What does 'por ti' mean?" that can be asked and adequately answered without asking for an English translation.

comment How do I say ' my cellphone is about to die' in Spanish?
I'm sorry to bring this up about such an old question, but for translation requests, we really want to focus on specific doubts, rather than providing long lists of possible translations. What specific doubt or question do you have about your proposed translation?

comment How do I say 'It took me 4 hours to get to Hamburg' in Spanish?
What is your specific doubt? Asking for a list of alternative translations isn't a very good format. If you have a specific doubt about your chosen translation, can you tell us what it is so we can help you with that doubt?

comment Diferentes maneras de denominar fuegos
You have asked 5 distinct questions here. Please ask one question per post. And be sure to do sufficient research before asking. That means you should consult an English/Spanish dictionary for each word first, and ask us only when you still have doubts.

comment Meaning of idiomatic phrase: «a caballo de»
@EmilioGort: It's a book... might be hard to identify a specific country. But with the title of the book and it's author, we might be close?
