Does anyone speak Portuguese or Spanish?
« on: January 11, 2014, 08:57:23 PM »
I'm a bellhop at the Tower of Terror. It's a major attraction, arguably the most popular one in our park. As such, whenever tour group season rolls around, we get hit the hardest. More often than not, the tour groups who roll through our little hotel are from Brazil, and they speak little to no English.

Getting them into their rows is the easy part. Getting them to do what I need them to do once they're seated is a little trickier because they don't understand a word I'm saying. It gets to the point that I can't send my vehicles on time, which causes a larger problem for those I work with.

If at all possible, I could use some help translating a few phrases into Portuguese. Spanish translations would be a plus, because we also have groups from Mexico and Puerto Rico, but I'll happily settle for the ones in Portuguese, as I see the Brazilian groups frequently.

Here are the phrases:

"You will be boarded one row at a time."

"Put your hands up."

"Pull the yellow strap on your seat belt."


Any help would be much appreciated. :-)

"VocÍs v„o ser embarcados uma linha de cada vez."

"Ponha as m„os para cima."

"Puxe a alÁa amarela em seu cinto de seguranÁa."

More or less... you can get the pronunciation on any online dictionary.

Se entra de a una fila por vez

Levante las manos ('Levanten las manos' for plural you, 'arriba las manos' for either if you want to be funny :P)

Tire de la parte amarilla de su cinturon de seguridad (again, tiren for plural)

Can't hear that phrase now without thinking of that American Dad! episode. :P

Curious - is this the way that police say 'Hands up'?  I vaguely remember that 'arriba' means 'fast' or something close (damn you, Warner Brothers!)
