comment Vegetables in Spanish
Often, "bocadillo vegetal" is a "bocadillo" which has lettuce and tomato, or other vegetables. It can have tuna as @JoulSauron says, but also chicken or other meats. Just google for "vegetal de pollo" and you'll see. I've never understood it, by the way.

It's not hubiese, but habría. The subjunctive goes in the "si..." part, and the conditional in the other one.

comment Translate “…when you're done” in Spanish
I disagree with your disagreement. It's cuando termines. I don't remember the grammatical rules well enough to explain the reasons, but it's the kind of thing a native speaker knows. It doesn't matter if it's a doubt or an expectation. You have to use the subjunctive. Cuando + present infinitive implies a contiuous action "cuando termino el trabajo, (siempre o habitualmente) guardo la pala". In this case, it is a one-time action and not a continuous one.

comment What is the difference between “es” and “está”?
@Em1 No, you are right. The second person imperative is "está" (RAE conjugation table), or "esté" for the formal use (usted). Now, I think I've never heard "está" used like that, but it's quite common in its pronominal(?) form: estate. Some examples: estate quieto, estate seguro de que [...], estate tranquilo...

Registrar would be the translation for "sign in", I think.
