Some words are just difficult to translate!!! This is true in some cases and there are quite a few words in Spanish that are quite difficult to translate correctly. One that I found the other day was the verb “estrenar”. Do you know how to say this verb in English?
The truth is that “estrenar” is difficult to translate and although google translate suggests that the translation is: “release” this is only correct in some situations. For example it is fine when you use it like this: “The film will be released on Friday”.
The problem is that Spanish people also use the verb “estrenar” for when you wear new clothes for the first time. So in this case, the word “release” is not appropriate. In this context, there is no easy way to translate the meaning so you have to use a long sentence: “Today I am going to wear this for the first time!”
Hope that helps!
