Translation:They can offer something else.
Question for a fluent French speaker... Am I wrong or should I report this to DL...I said, "They can buy something different." Isn't BUY a correct translation, also? I personally would have used "acheter" for the verb "buy" but I just used it here since it was also a given translation of "offrir."
In this instance, having no context, you should stick to what is proposed: "offer" is broader in meaning than "buy".
There are lots of things (material or not) that you can "offer" without any payment. you may also consider that "offer" may mean "propose" (proposer" which would only reinforce what I just said.
Note: when the English is "buy", the French do not always use "acheter"; ex: "can I buy you a drink?" = "puis-je t'offrir un verre ?" - the reason is cultural (our catholic roots...): we avoid mentioning money for presents/gifts.
This is good info to know and apply. Wouldn't want to say something that would be considered rude, or socially/culturally wrong or of poor etiquette. I do understand that I should have used the verb with the broader use/meaning, but I was simply "experimenting" if you will with the various translations, which I sometimes do just to get a sense of what is correct / when. This is one of those times that I learned by my experimentation. I do still think "TECHNICALLY" DL should have accepted it, but no biggie for me. Thanks again for your explanation and deeper delve into the cultural aspect.
