    Hi Lost Frog!

    It's 35€. I checked this currency converter website: http://www.xe.com/currencyconverter/...rom=EUR&To=CAD

    And it says 49,3$ (CAD), for 10 seeds.

    I suppose a few shops in Canada are already stocking Sweet Seeds. If I get any info about which ones I'll let you guys know.

    Sweet smokes!

    Is every pack going to be different? Is it one of those toss a bunch of different strains on the table and whatever ends up in the tube is what it is?. Kinda cool to grow them to feel the excitment of not knowin what strains they are before flowering. I like knowing what strains Im growing though. Thats just my preference. Take it easy Tommy.

    Hi KIM!

    Yep, as far as I know that's the thing. You'll get a few Red Family strains, some Cream Mandarines and other first class autos from Sweet Seeds. I guess this pack is going to succed as the strains included are there because they are really the best

    Lets see if I have time to toss a few of these in my next test grow...

    Sweet smokes!

    Hi again my friends! Got ya Shadimar, hehehe, nice one I always forget you guys are more about dots than commas



    Need a bit of help from you guys, if you'd be so kind...

    We're still looking after the best translation possible of the spanish original promotional text of the Sweet Auto Mix and I wanted to ask you your opinion on which of the following options sounds better to you guys. Or which could be correct or not correct.


    1. Would you say:

    A - "In this Mix you can find several strains"
    B - "In this Mix, you can find a mixture of their genetic collection"

    (this is to translate the spanish phrase "En este Mix puedes encontrar varias genéticas", literally meaning "In this Mix you can find several/different strains/varieties")



    2. Would you say:

    A - "from an autoflowering Cream Mandarine to one of the last purple varieties developed"
    B - "From an autoflowering Cream Mandarine to some of the latest purple varieties developed"
    C - "From some autoflowering Cream Mandarine to some of the latest purple varieties developed"

    (this is to translate the spanish phrase "desde una versión autofloreciente de Cream Mandarine hasta alguna de las últimas variedades desarrolladas de color morado", being the idea to say that the grower can get in this mix strains like Cream Mandarine, purple plants from any of the 3 purple strains from the catalog, etc)
    __________________________




    That's it. Every opinion will be much appreciated.

    Sweet smokes!

    Thanks bro

    Just to confirm... It doesn't sound strange to you having the words "mix" and "mixture" in the same sentence? And do you find the "comma" (,) necessary?

    More opinions please!!

    Regards,

    tommy

    Options are:

    A - "In this Mix you can find several strains"
    B - "In this Mix, you can find a mixture of their genetic collection"


    So, in conclusion you'd choose a mix between option A and option B, ahahahah (as underlined)

    Or better saying, you choose A but you add "of their genetic collection" to it in order to make it more clear. That's a good possibility, thanks.

    Anyone else? We really need to base our decision in at least 3 or 4 opinions, so I'd be glad to hear a few more, please

    Para 1) option B suena mal usa la option A tiene mucho mas sentido gramático

    Y para 2 ) B suena mejor

    Anyone else around to help with this? Please...


    Of course I trust the 3 friends here who already helped, but I would like to get to 5 votes so that my colleagues also get convinced that we are choosing the best option.



    With number 2 it's [0-3-0] so I think we're getting to a conclusion. With number 1 it's a bit harder as there's a tie at the moment, although Dr. Valent*n who understands the original version in spanish knows pretty well that the phrase "En este Mix puedes encontrar varias genéticas" sounds a bit weird translated as "In this Mix, you can find a mixture of their genetic collection", as the original versión makes no mention to the term "collection"; there is no comma; and "mix/mixture" is only used once, not twice.

    Anyway it can be different from original and be acepted as long as it doesn't sound weird, thus our need for opinions

    Thanks Sweet smokes!!

    Cool

    Hi Tommy,

    I'm not sure if this might work better for you or not - just my 2 cents Cdn

    1) B - "In this mix, you can find several varieties of their genetic collection"

    2) B - "From an autoflowering Cream Mandarine to some of the latest developed purple varieties"

    I'm not sure why you're focused on translating the Spanish when you could just use whatever phrasing you like. It's quite common for the same advertising media to be used with different language overlays for video advertising, so why not print or internet?

    Hi groo!

    Thing is that I'm not the person who decides this and what I'm supposed to do is find a way of saying the same thing using (almost) exactly the same words and yet sound good and without any errors. We can change it slightly, like a single word, but no more than that.

    What you suggest is a great suggestion and it's exactly what I do when I translate articles for magazines, because in that case I'm allowed and even encouraged to use completly different words and phrasal structures if that means a better quality text. For the catalog and seed packages we try to be as less flexible as possible as long as it makes sense and sounds aceptably good, which is what I'm aiming at here.
