Getting the Latin American sites
up and running has been a bit trickier than we initially expected.
Spanish is a fairly homogeneous language throughout the region but
unfortunately when it comes really local stuff, there are slight
idiomatic differences. In the case of a classifieds, getting these
differences right is crucial for the success of the sites.
Here are some examples:
1) The word Car is different:
2) When talking about property, people use the following:
Other important differences include:
Departamentos vs. Pisos
Bienes Raices vs. Inmuebles
Celulares vc. Moviles
Computadora vs. Ordenadores
Avisos vs. Anuncios
Then, in some countries you also get strange currency issues. For example in Argentina property for sale is generally quoted in USD but property for rent in Pesos. The same goes for electronic gadgets and computers that are also quoted in USD!
This is the reason why the Adoos sites are still in ALPHA, because we are working to get all these glitches fixed before launching with the full marketing campaigns.
