Default Spanish!

How do you write "Design by" in Spanish?

I'm working on a CD booklet at the moment and need some assistance.

The body copy has been provided and isn't really my concern (I can just make out what it is about).

English is hard enough for me!

What an interesting question. I thought it would be easy to look up on the web, but turns out that is not so.

I did discover five different words that mean plan: propósito, diseño, minuta, planear, inciso — but none seem quite likely (well, maybe planear). We need a Spanish speaker, plainly!

I made the same discovery too. Hopefully someone knows... I've got a tight deadline!

Default "Diseñado por" is "Designed by" in Spanish

"Diseñado por" is "Designed by" in Spanish. This is information from my friend Carlos, a native bilingual speaker, not anything that I know.

That would have been better, but I've sent the files off already. I'll remember that if I get any more Spanish language work.

If you get much Spanish language work you will have to learn it. Then you can tell us how to say things! <g>

I would not do work in Spanish unless my use of the language was perfect. Spanish speakers have a different concept of language. They are very close to theirs. Errors don't seem so much like common mistakes but many times like messing up a work of art. It even seems insulting on occasion. It can be like putting a picture painted by a high school student beside a classic piece of Catholic art. Something says right away -- what's that other picture doing here?

Interesting. Most people prefer to have their language spoken well, but the French and English speakers I know are not offended when it is not.
