comment How translate Troubleshoot into this sentence?
Para mí, troubleshooting es el proceso de detectar y resolver "problemas". Wikepedia coincide con esa visión ("Troubleshooting is a form of problem solving [...]")]. Así, troubleshooter sería "solucionador de problemas".

comment Are contracted pronunciations of mathematical functions common in spanish?
@Javi: I've just learnt something. I had always read or heard "sinc", never "seno cardinal". And I've used it quite a lot!

comment Are contracted pronunciations of mathematical functions common in spanish?
I agree with @IgnacioContreras. I've never heard a contracted form, either. I've always heard "coseno hiperbólico", "tangente hiperbólica", etc.

comment Words for on purpose, accidentally, intentionally, unintentionally, etc
I would say "intencionadamente" instead of "intencionalmente". And I would add "pretender" for "to mean to". And I would add "a posta" for intentionally, too.

comment What is the rule for cualquier, cualquiera, and cualesquiera?
What's wrong about "antes que sea tarde"? It's perfectly correct, even though to many people "antes de que sea tarde" sounds better. In fact, "antes que" predates "antes de que". source

comment Translation needed for “chairman”
Well, from your examples "presidenta" exists, as well as "clienta", and are widely used. What you say about -ente is true, but sometimes languages evolve without following logic or etymology. Another weird example is "modisto". Although "-ista" is the sufix for professions, male fashion designers are often called modistos.

To me, chairman sounds like "el hombre de la silla" and that doesn´t make sense either.

comment “You look good” versus “You smell good”
As an addition, I would say that "(tú) hueles bien" to mean "your sense of smell is good" is rather odd. In fact, I would say it could mean something more like "you are good at smelling" which is also rather strange. To say "your sense of smell is good" I would say "tienes buen olfato".

comment When is “al” not interchangeable with “a el”?
Here's what DPD says. Summarizing, it's what you said: if "El" is part of the name, and therefore capitalized, it is not contracted.

comment What's the origin of words ended in letter “j”?
I agree. Reloj, boj and carcaj are the only ones I've ever heard from that list.
