Trasladar and Trans­late

Trasladar (Span­ish for, “to move”) comes from the Latin trans­la­tus (“car­ried over”). From that root, we get the Eng­lish… trans­late.

Af­ter all, what is trans­lat­ing if not car­ry­ing over from one lan­guage to an­oth­er?

We can see that t‑r-s-l‑d of trasladar maps to the t‑r-(n)-s-d‑t of trans­late with on­ly a d/t sound shift, one of the most com­mon mix-ups.
