Need help with spanish before tomorrow?

As I was editing my project, I had to add a couple of things, and I had a couple of questions about how to say a few phrases, and I also found few grammar issues. Help please? The project is due tomorrow. Thank you.

Translation:

1) How do you say business developer?

2) How do you say "to work as" like to work as a manager, ... a banker, etc.?

3) How do you say "it is humid (humedo)?"

4) How do they say "high heels?"

5) How do you say homemaker/stay-at-home mom/dad?

6) How do you say "to be a victim of identity theft" or "to get your identity stolen?"

7) Does doctorado (doctorate?) mean the same as PhD? If it doesn't, how would you say it?

Grammar

1) Clarify when to use solo or solo(with accent)?

2) when you say "no le gusta _____(y, o) ______" would you use "or" or "and." Or does it matter?

3) Is this correct?

A ella le gustan sus perros y su gato.

Or

A ella le gustan sus perros y le gusta su gato.

gustan is conjugated for perros (plural), but not for gato (singular) so do you have to conjugate it again or is it ok to only conjugate the verb one time.

Update:

On part 3 of the grammar,

does it work the other way too?

A ella le gusta su gato y sus perros.

And it would work with infinitives too, right?

A ella le gustan sus perros y pasearlos.

you guys

are

amazing.

    1) Directivo de desarrollo de negocio

    2) Trabajar de/como manager, banquero

    Ella trabaja de/como profesora en la Universidad (She works as a teacher at the University)

    3) Está húmedo

    4) Tacones

    5) Ama de casa (surprisingly even if the "ama de casa" is a man)

    6) Ser víctima de un robo de identidad, que le roben a uno la identidad

    7) Yes, Doctorado honoris causa

    GRAMMAR

    1) ---You use sólo when it is an adverb and it means 'only'

    Sólo vino mi hermana (Only my sister came)

    ---You use solo when it is an adjective and it means 'lonely'

    Tras la operación se sintió un poco solo (After the operation he felt kind of lonely)

    2) It would definitely change the meaning. But I would use "ni..., ni..."

    No le gustan ni el arroz, ni los frijoles (He neither likes the rice nor the beans)

    3) The first one is better. You don't need to repeat the verb. Since you are saying her dogs and her cat, you only need the plural. So just once.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Yes but don't forget that the verb must agree with subject in person and number, so "a ella le gustan su gato y sus perros"

    In that case (when using infinitives), it would be more appropriate to repeat the verb, so "a ella le gustan sus perros y le gusta pasearlos"

    But try not to repeat verbs too much. You could try "a ella le gustan sus perros y le encanta pasearlos"

    Translation:

    1) How do you say business developer? = desarrollador de negocios

    2) How do you say "to work as" like to work as a manager, ... a banker, etc.? = trabajar como gerente

    He works as a manager = Él trabaja como gerente

    You can also use the ver "desempeñar" = Él se desempeña como gerente

    3) How do you say "it is humid (humedo)?" = es húmedo (if you refer to climate)

    4) How do they say "high heels?" = tacos altos / tacones altos

    5) How do you say homemaker/stay-at-home mom/dad?

    homemaker depends on context. If you mean housewife, it would be "ama de casa"

    stay-at-home mom/dad = madre/padre que se queda en la casa

    6) How do you say "to be a victim of identity theft" = ser víctima del robo de identidad /or "to get your identity stolen = que te han robado tu identidad

    7) Does doctorado (doctorate?) mean the same as PhD? If it doesn't, how would you say it?

    PhD = Doctor en Filosofía / also doctorado

    Grammar

    1) Clarify when to use solo or solo(with accent)?

    You use sólo (with accent) when you can replace it for "solamente"

    Example: I have only one coin = Tengo sólo una moneda (or tengo solamente una mondeda)

    Me siento solo (without accent) = I feel alone

    2) when you say "no le gusta _____(y, o) ______" would you use "or" or "and." Or does it matter?

    Negative sentence

    I like neither apples nor bananas

    No me gustan las manzanas ni las bananas

    I like to dance and to sing

    Positive sentence

    Me gusta cantar y bailar

    I like to dance or to sing

    Me gusta bailar o cantar

    3) Is this correct?

    A ella le gustan sus perros y su gato = that's correct

    Or

    A ella le gustan sus perros y le gusta su gato.(that's redundant)

    gustan is conjugated for perros (plural), but not for gato (singular) so do you have to conjugate it again or is it ok to only conjugate the verb one time.

    The verb "gustan" modifies the nouns, in this case dogs and cat, so you have to conjugate in plural.

    And it would work with infinitives too, right?

    A ella le gustan sus perros y pasearlos. = A ella le gustan sus perros y hacerlos pasear. Or = Ella ama a sus perros y le gusta sacarlos a pasear

    gustar + infinitive

    I like to swim = Me gusta nadar

    She likes to play and jump = A ella le gusta jugar y saltar

    3) Es húmedo

    4) tacones altos

    5) Ama de casa

    6) ser víctima de robo de identidad

    7) YES !

    Grammar:

    1) Solo could mean "alone" and also "just"

    2) I don't know how to answer, but it matters. belive me

    3) The first sentence sounds good. but the second sounds redundant

    Good luck!
