Translation:You do not believe me.

March 5, 2013


Sorted by top thread


so I type "you don't believe me :(" and it was wrong because of the smilie face?

June 8, 2013


No smiles for you! ;) Okay, maybe one.

Why don't you don't think of me? Believe, think, and create are on the list. Weird :/

I'm a native spanish speaker, from Argentina. "(ellos/ellas/ustedes)creen" could mean both "believe" or "think". But , in this case:

"Ustedes no me creen" only means "You do not believe me"

"Ustedes le creen" only means "You believe him/her"

because, in this sentence, "(ellos/ellas/ustedes)creen" refers to a person ("me"), and that only means "believe" in spanish. This sentence means you are thinking that i lie. It not means you are thinking about me. If we would replace "me" by something (not with a person), now "creen" could means both "believe" or "think". You believe that something is true, or you are thinking about something.

"You do not think of me" means "Ustedes no piensan en mí".

Examples with "creen" and something :

"Ustedes creen eso" means both "You think that" or "You believe that".

"Ustedes creen esto" means both "You think this" or "You believe this".

I don't know if i am perfectly clear to explain, but i hope so. :-)

That was extremely helpful, thank you!

I wrote "they don't believe me" and it was wrong. But can't we translate "Ustedes" as "they"?

December 16, 2014


No, "Ustedes" is only for acusativ. They = ellos.

December 16, 2014


Oh, yes, thank you, MichaelaSt9!

December 16, 2014


And "ellas" :)

The translation for ustedes equates more to "you all." Ustedes no me creen = You (all) don't believe me. For some in the southern U.S. ustedes = Y'all.

How would you say "you don't believe in me"?

April 4, 2016


Ustedes no creen en mí.

September 22, 2017


The answer should be "you all dont belive me" not "you dont believe me". If it was supposed to be "you", it should be "usted no me cree" or "tu no me crees"

April 13, 2017


In English "you" can be either singular or plural, so it's still okay here. "You all" or even "y'all" should be accepted as well.

What's wrong with "you didn't create me"?

March 5, 2013


Your confusing the very similar looking "creer"(to believe) and "crear"(to create). Ah I see it is on the hints list here too. Will require some investigation. Appears to be a mistake.

creen = 3ªpers plur indicativo de creer AND 3ªpers plur imperativo de crear

Ustedes no me creen (3ªpers plur indicativo creer)

creen ustedes un planeta entre Venus y Marte, donde haya agua líquida y oxígeno gaseoso (3ªpers plur imperativo de crear)

"you don't all believe me". somebody can explain me why it is wrong ?

March 13, 2014


It should be "you all don't believe me". The all doesn't make sense in english if you put it after don't because it is like you are trying to say a singular person doesn't believe everything you say. However, in this sentence, it is saying a group of people (you all) don't believe me.

May 3, 2014


Ye don't believe me?

December 24, 2014


I put "you guys don't believe me" and it was correct. FYI

May 13, 2015


Should "You do not believe in me" be accepted?

November 17, 2015


- creer algn - to believe someone
- creer en algn - to believe in someone

September 22, 2017


Ustedes isn't it formal and meaning you all

December 29, 2015


"Usted" is formal. "Ustedes" can be informal when taking the place of "vosotros" and means "you all"/second person plural. (Spain uses "vosotros", all other Spanish-speaking countries use "ustedes", though any native speaker will understand both when spoken to.)

December 29, 2015


I used don't instead of do not how it's that wrong

June 29, 2017


Your sentence requires "IN me" !

January 17, 2018


You believe me - You trust that what I say is true - Me crees.
You believe in me - You put faith in me/You claim that I exist - Crees en mí.

I am happy to report that Duolingo accepts "Y'all don't believe me."

March 19, 2018


Ok this getting beyond ridiculous in this section. The answers are far more picky than other sections, but this one is just stupid. I was marked wrong for using "don't" instead of "do not." WHY?

June 22, 2018


After years "You don't belive in me" still isn't accpeted?

August 19, 2018


Rightfully. Like in English, "to believe in" needs a preposition in Spanish:

Ustedes no creen en mí.

August 19, 2018


You don't believe in me, come on Duo this is an abbreviation and should be accepted

December 2, 2018


It is "believe me" (i.e. "think that my claims are true"), not "believe in me" (i.e. "be confident that I exist or that I do well").
