"Math is Fun" in Spanish?

I am thinking it would be good to translate some of the mathsisfun.com website to Spanish, but what would "Math is Fun" be in Spanish

"Matematicas es divertida" ... ? Not a good domain name: matematicasesdivertida.com

Any Ideas?

Re: "Math is Fun" in Spanish?

Ohh!!

That'd be nice!

You like spanish ¿?

I think we can call it "Mate es entrete".

"Entrete" means "Fun", actually, the complete spanish word is "Entretenida", but it is a little large for the domain name.

That would be 'Matématicas son divertidas'. wink

Or, replace Matematicas with mates. I think.

Re: "Math is Fun" in Spanish?

Just wonderin'.... why instead creating a domain you create, here, a spanish section?

Re: "Math is Fun" in Spanish?

Yes, we could have a Spanish section in the forum ... but the disfrutalasmatematicas.com domain is for a "mathisfun.com" translation. Once I get it off the ground I think there may be a lot of Spanish-speaking visitors directed to this forum.

By the way, do you like "disfrutalasmatematicas.com" ... ?

Re: "Math is Fun" in Spanish?

I might like it when it contains something more than coming soon.
Just wondering, why didn't you write "coming soon" in Spanish?

Just wondering, though...

I like "disfrutalasmates.com".

Short & "mates" sounds better than "matemáticas".

I asked at the UniLang forum, and use of "mates" varied from country to country

Re: "Math is Fun" in Spanish?

I am a perfect bilingual, English and Spanish. If you need any help in translating etc you could always contact me even though I checked the Spanish site and everything seems to have been translated already. As I said, I speak perfect Spanish and could be of help if needed.

Also, I think the name you chose is perfect. First of all, translating "Math is fun" to a catchy Spanish name is kind of hard given the length of the resulting name since mathematics by itself is long. I think "Disfruta las Matematicas" (enjoy the mathematics) is well suited.

Some people recommended above to use "mates". The country I come from, we NEVER use that word to refer to math. We always use Mathematics since we dont have a short-cut such as "math" as we have in English. In fact, the ONLY meaning that "mates" have in my country is "to make out", I dont think you want a site like that, haha smile

Re: "Math is Fun" in Spanish?

Thanks, Luis.

At first glance it does look good, but there are hundreds of pages still to be translated, and I don't want to "release" the website until it is mostly complete.

I have a translator working part time on it, at about 10 pages a week.

But if you can help out though, it would be appreciated.

Hi!
First, forgive my poor english skill.
I like the site "disfrutalasmatematicas.com", that's how I came here.

In my country neither we use a short-cut to say mathematics. If you say "mates" here people automaticly thinks in more tha one "mate" [1]. And i like a lot the domain name "disfrutalasmatematicas.com" it`s very funny, I think.

I found this forum because I want to make my little contribution about to articles [2] [3]. I read there are some native spanish speakers un the forum so I will continue writing in spanish because I`m to tired.

Por favor, si no se entiende que alguie traduzca el resto (estuve quemandome la cabeza - otro sinonimo de "mate" por estos pagos, jaja - estudiando hasta recién y casi no puedo escribir ni en español smile

La cuestión es que encontre este foro porque no podía decir por qué con un exponente negativo quedaba la inversa de la base con el denominador elevada al mismo índice pero postivo. Esos dos artículos que encontré estan bárbaros, pero me parece que ayudaría mucho a la gente poco conocimiento de matemática que se especifique qué pasa cuando el denominador de la base, o el número del cuál se quiero obtener el inverso para el artículo de el inverso, no es 1. Es una tontería, pero por ahí a alguien lo ayuda. Un saludo para todos. De nuevo, muy buena la página por lo poco que ví hasta ahora.

Re: "Math is Fun" in Spanish?

Hi juantelez. Glad you like disfrutalasmatematicas.com

Everyone ... perhaps we should have an "Español" sub-forum ... ?

Re: "Math is Fun" in Spanish?

It will be great! Specially for me, since my english level it's not that good. And I'll like to have a place to ask something like:

Hola. alguien sabe si se puede salvar esta indeterminación y cómo?

lim x->1  ln / x - 1 =

Re: "Math is Fun" in Spanish?

"Disfruta Las Matemáticas" (disfrutalasmatematicas.com) is nearly finished, just a few more pages, some images and animations to go.

Should we now open up an "Español" sub-forum here and let visitors to Disfruta Las Matemáticas know about it? Who could handle Spanish math questions?

You could open that sub-forum and stick there a link to disrutalasmatematicas.com.
