comment Computer science, software engineer/developer, and programmer
@Flimzy: IMO, all the discussion shows it's more complex than a simple dictionary translation. Granted, it's not really "expert-level," but I think it's something I'd have trouble understanding completely just using a dictionary.

comment Translating “young man” and “young woman”
@hippietrail: Yeah it seems like every question on a Q&A site is a request (so no need to duplicate that), and for a "word" or "single-word" tag, see the meta question.

comment Backchannels (listener responses) in Spanish
Wouldn't the last example be translated a lot more strongly than "Get out of here"?

comment What is the correct order of object pronouns?
@jasonmcclurg: That example has only one object pronoun. Ella is the subject pronoun, me is an indirect object pronoun, and dijo is the verb.
