"Lo hemos citado."

Translation:We have cited it.

They corrected me saying the answer is "we have set an appointment for him". I dont understand that.

May 5, 2014


(Lo hemos citado) Said the sniper...

January 18, 2016


We have summoned him. like a court date.

December 10, 2018


Well, that’s not what it says.

August 21, 2018


My book says that citar also means to make an appointment. I wonder which usage is more common...

October 2, 2013


I hear yours more, but I think it depends on the daily life you have.

"incited" is also a given translation for "citado". Why then is "we have incited it/him" marked wrong? Is "incited" never used like this?

May 11, 2014


"We have scheduled it"; can that not be correct?

August 20, 2014


i don't know what "we have cited it" means in English... I blame comprehensive schools.

You cite something when you're writing a paper, and you need to reference your sources.

April 23, 2014


The meaning of "cite" in this phrase is: to call upon officially or authoritatively to appear (as before a court). Yes, I have no idea why this phrase is doing here.

You can also just cite a book or a scientific paper. Or quote an article. Or make an appointment with a customer. There are so many possibilities. :)

It means the same as we have quoted it. However, in English usage we are more likely to cite someone rather than his words, when usage would call for "quote".

November 8, 2013


Cited could also mean to be issued a citation or ticket from the police.

January 31, 2014


I wonder if citado is the word used for a police citation or if they only use citado for reference citations.

June 21, 2014


Dosn't it mean more that you have given a reference for someone you have quoted?

August 30, 2014


I believe the meaning is different. I believe the meaning of "cite" in this phrase is: "to call upon officially or authoritatively to appear (as before a court)".

And just to confuse things further, "works cited" = bibliography.

To cite often means to quote from, rather than simply to quote: I quote (and cite) Hamlet when I say, "To be or not to be," but I cite Hamlet (and quote Polonius) when I say, "Brevity is the soul of wit."

This translation is using the "cite = quote" meaning: We have quoted it. Also, policemen issue traffic citations (aka traffic tickets) to drivers for parking and moving violations.

The sentence building exercize gave me words that led to a correct answer of "we have set an appointment for him".

June 1, 2014


Here, too, I was baffled :/

October 1, 2017


"To cite someone to you" can be used to express "to request someone to appear before you". I admit the translation is a bit unexpected. :)

December 6, 2017


You've never had to cite something for a research paper?

October 29, 2014


Why 'we have mentioned it' isn't correct?

June 11, 2015


Same question.

December 13, 2015


I believe the meaning is different. I believe the meaning of "cite" in this phrase is: "to call upon officially or authoritatively to appear (as before a court)".

To cite is not the same as to mention. Use mencionar for "mention". To cite someone or something is very different to merely mentioning someone or something. Why try use something different when the English translation is so similar to the Spanish that it is spelled almost the same? Don't try complicate things when the answer is obvious.

October 8, 2017


We've cited it isn't accepted. Wtf

March 5, 2014


It is now.

May 22, 2015



April 25, 2014


"we've" is the contraction for "we have". Lost a heart.

March 18, 2014


Sometimes that wouldn't work i.e. "We've the prize" vs "We've left the prize"

April 5, 2014


You have listened to many English speakers, then :P

April 23, 2014


"Citar" can also mean to arrange something. I put "We have arranged it" and it was not accepted...

December 14, 2014


I believe the meaning is different here. I believe the meaning of "cite" in this phrase is: "to call upon officially or authoritatively to appear (as before a court)".

July 8, 2017


Why is we have an appointment set for him not acceptable

June 4, 2016


I believe the meaning is different. I believe the meaning of "cite" in this phrase is: "to call upon officially or authoritatively to appear (as before a court)".

July 8, 2017


Another crap phrase...

March 14, 2017


Since when is "lo" for him. Isn't that le?

October 1, 2014


"le" is the indirect object pronoun and doesn't specify gender: "to him/to her/to it/to you"

"lo" can be "him, it or you". (direct, can indicate gender)

"la" can be "her, it or you". (direct, can indicate gender)

October 2, 2014


why not "We have cited him?"

February 15, 2016


He is clearly rolling a double 'r' Get rid of the male speaker, he sucks

May 28, 2016


Would "we have booked it" work?

September 2, 2016


You can also say set him an appt

January 6, 2017


"Citar" = to set an appointment; to quote.

December 6, 2017


"We have incited it" is given as one of the possibilities when you hover over the words, and it also seemed like the most likely and natural sentence to be used in the English language. I have never heard somebody say, "we have cited it" in any form of conversation. And I am currently enrolled in a University..... Really the ONLY place where you ever even hear the word "cite".

December 22, 2017


I wrote We have an appointment --- Duo said . "we have set an appointment for it" . --- Does Duo know English? I rest my case. I have reported it. 2/4/2018

February 4, 2018


Tenemos una cita. You may need to re-open your case.

August 21, 2018


'We have noted it' and DL didn't accept. Can someone tell me why?

October 7, 2018


"We have it cited" is incorrected. 5 year old problem they don't care to solve. Money money money by duolingo creators. Masturbation masturbation masturbation by Duolingo creators.
