comment What words are typically used to refer to vehicles and deliniate between types of vehicles in Latin America
This question, as worded, is very broad. It could also likely be answered with any Spanish/English dictionary. Can we get you to narrow the question significantly? If you have a specific doubt about how to translate a specific word or phrase, after consulting standard reference materials, that would be the proper question to ask.

comment Which Spanish words are most commonly used to describe smells?
Welcome to our site! We're glad you're here. Unfortunately, your question as it's worded is really too broad to fit our format here. We're looking for specific, answerable questions. Your question could, quite literally, have an indefinite number of correct answers, as it's always possible to apply a new word in a creative way to apply to smells. You might consider narrowing the focus of your question so that we can re-open it.

comment “Bad” words in good phrases - how socially acceptable are they
We have the same theater slang in English, too... we say "break a leg" to mean "good luck."

comment When does one replace “le/les” with the pronoun “se”?
I have removed the second sentence from your question... it would make for a better question all on its own.

comment When does one replace “le/les” with the pronoun “se”?
@Curious: The short answer: "Yes!" For a longer answer, I would suggest asking a question on how to use 'se' in passive expressions, as that is a separate question than the one asked here.

comment When does one replace “le/les” with the pronoun “se”?
@EmilioGort: Of course it's valid. I'm not saying it's not. I'm saying that 'se' doesn't translate to 'one'.

comment How should I pronounce the Spanish consonant 'd'?
Welcome, @gus, to our site! You've asked two excellent questions. However, you have asked two distinct questions here. I have removed your second question, to keep this one better focused. I encourage you to ask your second question (about the pronunciation of /b/) as a second question!

comment When does one replace “le/les” with the pronoun “se”?
To say "se" means "one" is inaccurate. "Se puede" is the reflexive construction. "Milk is sold here" would be "La leche se vende aquí" which is the same verb construction, but there's obviously no "one" to be translated in this case.

Indeed, por vs. para is confusing for most people learning Spanish from English. :)

comment Meaning of “en + infinitive” in “en explorar”
@JackM: Read more here. English has the same construct as Spanish, too--that is to use the infinitive ('to explore'), but has more diversity than Spanish in this regard. In English one can say, for instance, "Swimming is fun" as well as "To swim is fun." In Spanish, only "Nadar es divertido" is accepted and "Nadando es divertido" is non-grammatical.

Note that you work para una empresa, not por una empresa.

This is interesting... do you have a reference for this?

comment What is the difference between Spanish and Ladino?
@Envite: On the SE network, we encourage answers to be well-referenced. If you feel Wikipedia provides sufficient reference material for your answer, I encourage you to add that to your answer, not simply as a comment.

Can you provide some additional context? It's hard to know what might have been meant.

Very interesting. Can you provide sources (even if just wikipedia)?
