      Description

      to organise, arrange, tidy up.

      DIEC also says: POP. Emprendre, engegar, iniciar, elaborar. The context I have obviously means "iniciar". What should we do about this?

        I would suggest something along the following lines:

        endegar
        verb [trans]
        1. to organize / to organise (Br.) / to tidy up / to arrange
        2. to put together
        3. to get (something) on the right path
        4. to begin <engnote>Although 'endegar' is often used to mean 'to begin', it is not advisable to use it with this meaning yourself (use 'iniciar' or 'comenšar' or 'engegar' instead) as its use is often frowned upon</engnote>

        I like (4) - maybe we need a "native speakers only" tag.

        endegar sense 4. is probably a malapropism in origin. It sounds a bit like "engegar" and "encetar" which do include 'begin' in their meanings.
