"Los políticos"

Translation:The politicians

December 6, 2013



In this same lesson, I have seen DL translate Los politicos to "politicians". Now, it is only accepting "The politicians". Is this report worthy?

I second this question. Also, Usagiboy, do you know if you would call a female politician "un político." Does "la política" exist in Spanish?

I am seeing "Politicas" when I Google "Spanish word for female politician http://www.123teachme.com/spanish_word_for/female They are also both female politicians. Son también dos mujeres políticas. So, I am going to guess that yes, politica is used to indicate a female politician, at least for some Spanish speakers.

However, La politica also seems to be the Spanish word for Politics in general. http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pol%C3%ADtica

Does "las políticas" exist for only female politicians? Or would you call, say, three female politicians "los políticos", too?

"The pork" would also be a humorously apt translation of "Les politicos"

I tried "the politicos", but was not accepted. However, "the politicos" is standard English, and refers to "the politicians. I reported it.
