Google's machine translation is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.
Do not translate text that appears unreliable or low-quality. If possible, verify the text with references provided in the foreign-language article.
Elysa Ayala was the first woman in Ecuador to write stories about the issues of montubios (poor and simple peasants from the Ecuadorian coast) in her writings, which went far beyond the customs of her time. Despite the sexist and conservative atmosphere in Ecuador during that period, Elysa's early work appeared in magazines of Argentina (Pink Clouds and Revista Argentina), Chile (Events and El Nacional), Uruguay (Forward), Cuba (Hero and Cosmos), USA (America) and Spain (Valencia Voice ).
