How do you say “Exactly how is your name written on your Social Security card?” I am trying to find out how my nanny’s name appears on SSA records (it has to be exact when I submit the info), and her English is not great when it comes to complicated thoughts or phrases.
Shouldn’t it be: “…como se escribe su nombre…”? Reflexive verbs and all.
On a related note, I’ve found that simplicity is the better part of valor when it comes to speaking to someone in a language in which you’re not fluent. That said, may I suggest simply asking “May I see you Social Security Card, please?” “¿Puedo ver su tarjeta de la Seguridad Social, por favor?”
