I've got an application form in Spanish, which starts with

En.................., a.... de.... de .........

Yo,............................................

(Profesion u oficio).........domiciliado en....

Looks like I am supposed to write name and surname after Yo, but what the first line means?

Location and date you are filling the form, like:

En Madrid, a 27 de febrero de 2018

Yo, Full Name,

occupation, domiciliado en full address

That's for writing the date. If you were filling that form today in, say, Barcelona, it would look like this:

En Barcelona, a 27 de febrero de 2018.

Remember: dates in Spanish are day, month, year; and month names are lowercase.

    Unless you use roman numerals for the month, in which case uppercase is preferred :-) – user0721090601 Feb 27 '18 at 22:05
  • Touché (although sometimes I do feel like I'm the only person that still writes dates using them) – user0721090601 Feb 27 '18 at 22:26
