      Omission of article

      ► Don't translate the article "a" in sentences like I'm looking for a flat, when the number of such things is not significant since people normally only look for one at a time:

      I'm looking for a flat Estoy buscando piso

      He's looking for a secretary Busca secretaria

      The personal a is not used before people when the article is omitted as above.

      ► Do translate the article when the thing or person is qualified:

      He's looking for a little flat Busca un piso pequeño

      NOTE: When translating examples like I'm looking for someone to ... translate the English to-infinitive using que + ((subjunctive)):

      I'm looking for someone to help with the children Busco a alguien que me ayude con los niños

      I'm looking for a mechanic to repair my car Busco a un mecánico que me arregle el coche
