Signs seen being waved at the convention — presumably passed out along with other placards — read "Hispanics para Trump."

Not only did the text not translate "Hispanics" to "Hispanos," it also used "para" instead of "por." 

The two words — which both denote various meanings of the word "for" — are easily mixed up and a common point of frustration for those learning the language.
