remover

Today I downloaded Fedora Core 3 to upgrade my system. After inserting the first cd I saw this dialog. remove in Spanish is not remover it is eliminar or quitar. This is the most common mistake I can see in free software translations. For the record, the Real Academia de la Lengua defines remover as:
  • Pasar o mudar algo de un lugar a otro
  • Mover algo
  • Quitar, apartar u obviar un inconveniente

Notice that this last entry talks about quitar but only for something that is dissgusting
