"Sí, aquí es."

Translation:Yes, it is here.

Why isn't he/she/it allowed in this case?

January 6, 2013


I believe it's not he or she because then it would be Está when you understand the difference between Es and Está you would realize it could only refer to a thing and not a person for Aquí es but that's just my opinion

March 23, 2015


You are right, this sentence is refering to a place, to an specific location, if it said "aqui está" would be more for "Yes, he/she is here."

I wish someone would answer your question. I don't see a reply below. I agree with you, NIV.

Well, my guess is that it could be he or she as well as it, if the situation were one of presentation/discovery and not location.

"Here she is, Miss America" (That's a cultural reference from a long time ago, kids.) -- in this case, it's definitely presentation.

Now I'll be humming that all night.

Then probably the answer would be "Si, está aqui". This is probably the answer on following question: Is the party here? So an occasion, something you can't touch i.e. a funeral, a wedding, etc.

Do you have my pen? Yes, here it is.

December 31, 2012


so ... in that context (by rspreng) we use ser and not estar because the idea is that of presentation or discovery, not identification of location. Yes?

July 14, 2013


'According to my wayward friend Google Translate: 'Yes, here it is' = 'Sí, aqui es'. But...'Yes, it is here' = 'Sí, está aqui'. Is the first 'presentation/discovery' and the second, 'location' ?? More confusion.

October 18, 2013


Whenever you're talking about the location of something, you always use estar. It doesn't matter if you've just found it or not.

That said, it appears there are a few situations where "aquí es" would be correct. Example: "Está aquí el hotel" = "The hotel is here" "Es aquí el hotel" = "There is a hotel here"

The first sentence is referring to the specific location of the hotel, while the second one is more like saying that a hotel exists in this area. I got this from wordreference, and it was written by a native speaker so I guess it's correct. But I've never heard anybody say "aquí es", so the usage must be really rare. You're better off saying, "Hay hotel aquí" and avoiding the whole mess.

'Hay hotel aquí translates as 'There is a hotel here', which isn't quite the same as 'The hotel is here.'

August 11, 2017


HAY UN HOTEL AQUI (there is a hotel here)

EL HOTEL ESTA AQUI (the hotel is here)

Right in front of my nose how careless of me.

May 24, 2017


Seri shoudnt say crap, thats not really bad, or dang, or sh or heck, or bit, or fu*, or dam.

May 11, 2018


with location shouldn't "esta" be used?

February 1, 2013


Take a look at @maldesh's comment

July 13, 2014


Correct answer says "yes, here it's"- that's not English, unless you're Yoda, only then English it is.

May 19, 2015


English people would NEVER use 'Here it's', unless in a long sentence or followed by another word, eg: 'here it's warm' they always say 'it's here' or 'here it is'

November 12, 2013


Exactly, "Here it is" not, "Here it's." We don't use the contraction like that.

December 31, 2012


I would translate "aquí está" as "here it is"

May 24, 2013


Why is it not "Here it is" ?

August 7, 2016


my pen: aqui esta. my house: aqui es. correct?

April 28, 2013


If referring to the location of your pen and your house, both would come under the heading of 'location', therefore 'estar' would be used.

October 18, 2013


Can I say : es aquí

June 26, 2015


Here it is and It is here are the same thing

April 6, 2017


I thought that with geographical places the estar form would be used instead

April 16, 2017


I feel like "Yes, it's over here" should also be allowed as an answer. Sounds more natural too, in my opinion. Thoughts?

May 21, 2017


If the word "it" refers to an event taking place in a location, "ser" would be used, not "estar". For example, "La fiesta es en el jardín". At least, I think that is how it works.

September 15, 2017


Si, lo esta aqui. Why not?

April 13, 2018


Why not, "here it is" as an answer?
