"These citizens are trying to leave the island."
Translation:Estos ciudadanos están tratando de salir de la isla.
Thank you for your answer but are you sure about it?
I was just trying to load a song in Spotify and it couldn't load it, so I got a pop up with a button: "Probar de nuevo" meaning tratar de nuevo, which is not associated with trying something physical but rather to intent/try again.
Another meaning of "probar de" is "to test," so maybe that is what Spotify was suggesting.
