Adolfo: one for you?
Comment 2 Adolfo Jayme 2013-09-19 07:52:11 UTC
“Arribo” *is* a Spanish word. http://lema.rae.es/drae/?val=arribo
Comment 3 Raúl Álvarez Tenor 2013-09-19 09:46:24 UTC
Arribo is not usually used in this case. Llegadas is more common.
Comment 4 Adolfo Jayme 2013-09-19 10:21:25 UTC
Still, I don’t think it’s worth the hassle to remake the banner just to change a word for a synonym. I’m not the one who created it, and we should update it anyway (it’s from February’s 4.0 release).
Comment 5 Raúl Álvarez Tenor 2013-09-19 10:31:33 UTC
For the sake of correctness. You don't use "debarkations" in english, for example. I'm a native spanish(castillan) speaker, and I've never used or seen being used arribos in this way.

Example of “arribos” in an airport. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-LnsxgLs6l-Q/UM6HgiEVzDI/AAAAAAAAAXI/ausrzfL_Ico/s320/arribos+2.jpg

The difference is, arribo is not a loanword, you can find it in books; and if in your region is not commonly used, that does not mean it doesn’t exist. I’m a native speaker as well, and that does not mean anything in this discussion. And as I said, the banner is old, we’d better kill it off.

I've made the banner, it was updated for 4.1 launch.

"Arribos" is a localism

Comment 10 Toni Ballesta 2013-09-22 08:21:07 UTC
¿Arribos? jajajaja es cierto, ni me había fijado.
