I am developing an app for the Google Assistant and making Spanish translations.
My question is:
- How should chatbots (the Google Assistant) refer to the user, and
- How should users refer to the chatbot?
I have done some research, and I found that chatbots probably should use
usted because when talking with a stranger formality is supposed to be used.
However, I don't know how people normally "treat" chatbots.
I am required to provide examples of "invocations": sample phrases the user can say to the Google Assistant to bring up my chatbot.
The built-in example is:
Hablar con Mi Aplicación
This further confuses me; am I supposed to use the infinitive? I assumed I should use the imperative because you are commanding the chatbot.
When asking a chatbot to do something, should the user use imperative for
usted, imperative for
tu, or infinitive?
