Spanish Translation

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok so I do alright but I'm dealing with a potential reception site and some of this vocab I simply don't know...so I figured I'd put it all here in hopes that someone can give me good translations so I don't appear idiotic dealing with the people! Anyway, here's my questions...any and all help is appreciated!

1. What is the minimum number of guests needed to reserve a reception room?

2. Is that number negotiable for a fee? (since all guests are out-of-town)

3. How early will reservations need to be made for an April 7, 2007 wedding?

4. Is the site able to accomodate a ceremony or just the reception? If we can have the ceremony there, can I bring my own officiant, play recorded music, etc. and will they do ceremony flowers, bouquets, etc?

5. Can I pick the colors for decorations, flowers, cake, etc.

6. Is there a DJ, if so, will he play certain songs, make announcements, etc. Is there a bilingual DJ?

7. Do the packages include dishes, glassware, cake cutting utensils, etc?

8. Does a buffet run cheaper than a seated dinner?

9. How many hours do the prices cover?

10. Do we need to make a deposit and if so, how early?

11. Can they arrange for transportation (ie, limo) for the send-off?

I'm a Spanish interpreter and translator, but I'm more used to doing "generic Spanish" to be understood by the wide range of Spanish speakers in the US than specifically Mexican, so a lot of those might not be exactly what things are called in Mexico. They'll probably be understood though.

1. ¿Cuál es la cantidad mínima de invitados que se necesita para reservar una sala de banquete?

2. Ya que todos los invitados vendrán de otras ciudades, ¿se puede negociar una cantidad menor de la necesaria a cambio de una tarifa adicional?

3. ¿Para qué fecha será necesario reservar las instalaciones para una boda el 7 de abril del 2007?

4. ¿Se puede celebrar la boda allí mismo en el local, o nada más el banquete? Si podemos celebrar la boda allí, ¿puedo contratar al oficiante? ¿tocar música grabada? ¿Pueden ustedes proporcionar las flores para decorar la sala y para los ramilletes?

5. ¿Puedo yo escoger los colores para las decoraciones, las flores, el pastel, etcétera?

6. ¿Hay un disc jockey de plantilla? En caso que sí, ¿se puede pedir ciertas canciones? ¿Puede él anunciar las cosas? ¿Hay un disc jockey bilingüe?

7. ¿Los conjuntos incluyen las vajillas, los vasos, utensilios para cortar el pastel, etcétera?

8. ¿Es más barato tener un bufet que una cena formal con meseros?

9. ¿De cuántas horas sería el conjunto pagado?

10. ¿Tenemos que pagar un depósito? En caso que sí, ¿cuándo?

11. ¿Pueden ustedes hacer los arreglos para el transporte de nosotros --como, por ejemplo, una limusina-- al final del banquete?
