For set combinations in which as is not the first word, eg such ... as, the same ... as, dressed as, acknowledge as, look up the other word.

      You can usually use cuando when the as clause simply tells you when an event happened:

      In the context of two closely linked actions involving parallel development, translate [as] using [a medida que] or [conforme]. Alternatively, use [según va] {etc} + gerund:

    2. (in reason clauses)

      When as means "since" or "because", you can generally use como, provided you put it at the beginning of the sentence. Alternatively, use the more formal puesto que either at the beginning of the sentence or between the clauses or ya que especially between the clauses.

      como; more frm puesto que, ya que
