Perdí mi clave.

Technically, “clave” is “key”, so “I lost my key” seems like a good translation. My only problem is that it seems misleading. The word “llave” is a “key” for a (door)lock, but “clave” is important or key bit of information, or code (for encryption), or a musical key.

I would be interested to hear from a native speaker about this.

That means I lost my password.
I lost my key is Yo perdí my llave.

Llave ≠ Clave

So, you agree that the translation, “I lost my key” is at best misleading and at worst wrong.


Definitely wrong. :slight_smile:
