As the title says, is there anyone who could help me translating some email correspondence I had whilst booking the first night's digs for myself and DannyBoy.

I have cut and pasted the full transcription below.

I have tried with Babelfish and can get the rough gist of things but there are other bits that don't translate well


my first message

Hello

2 motorcycles.

Babel Fish... but you get the drift.

"I RESERVE 1 DOUBLE ROOM TO YOU FOR THE 6 OF JULIO. ESCRIBEME a MAIL DAY BEFORE OR Llama BY TELEPHONE TO Nº 608934222 FOR CONFIRMMAR the RESERVE. THANK YOU VERY MUCH."
Google Translate-
"TE RESERVE 1 DOUBLE ROOM FOR JULY 6. DAYS BEFORE YOU WRITE ME AN EMAIL or by telephone at No. CONFIRMMAR FOR BOOKING 608934222."

(Write email several days before or call by phone)

Babel-
"The reserve already this done for the night of the 6 of 2009 July. I communicate to him that without you later than the 3 are going to arrive afternoon please warn to me."

Google-
"The reservation is done for the night of July 6, 2009. I can tell you that they will not get you later than 3 pm please tell me."

(Think that means you need to confirm by the 3rd or the room will not be ready till 3.)

Hi there,


Well Portuguese and not Spanish, so what i can figure out of it is:

1 - The booking is made.
2 - On the first email she askes you to email her a couple of days before to confirm the booking.
3 - On the second email she askes you, if by any chance you arrive at that location after 3 PM call her on the number she gave ya.


Hope i havent made a mess of the "translation".
