"Los perros comen desde carne hasta pasta."
This is a case of words having direct translations to english, but when used together in a phrase mean something a little different.
"Bailo desde rock'n'roll hasta hip hop."
"I dance anything from rock'n'roll to hip hop."
My complaint is that there was no primer for this. Under the prepositions tab there should have been a brief description of how "desde ... hasta" are used together to mean "anything from... to ..." Otherwise we are just left confused when we do the direct translation of each word independently.
I think there's a purpose to not giving a primer on some things. It gives it more of an "immersion" effect, which might help to remember it better in the future.
After all, this isn't a test to see who can get the highest score, but an aid to help you speak Spanish better.
The fact that this caught you (us) off guard - and now here we are talking about it - probably will help us to remember it in the future.
Sure, we missed a heart, but that not the point. Learning is.
The English translation shown on the "oops" page doesn't make sense - "The dogs eat from meat to pasta." Now that I'm leaving this comment, I see the translation here in the comment section adds the word ANYTHING and that makes a big difference. I did use the "report a problem" button, but it doesn't give an option that fits this issue.
Thanks heaven for all of the folk who contribute to these discussions: They help us to learn. The 'glitches' in the translation encourage me to check the comments, hence gaining valuable insights into appropriate translations. I particularly appreciate the comment from 'tompollard61' and 'uphillemu' that the construction using 'desde...hasta' indicates a range of items. I would like to see 'from meat to pasta' removed on the grounds that it does not make sense in English.
