Sí, sangrado. Pero pienso que "bleed" es como sangra. Sangrado es "bleeding." Es que pienso.

@Crotalito, your dictionary is incorrect if it says that 'bleed' means sangrado. 'Bleed' is a verb. Desangrar or sangrar is the translation.
The topic of this thread has nothing to do with the verb 'bleed', however. The topic is the idiomatic expression 'to bleed white'.

The expression means 'to cause someone hardship by cutting off all their supplies'.
'Quitar dinero a' o 'quitar bienes a' are good translations of the expression, in my opinion.

No, no. "bleed" doesn't mean "sangrado" - "To bleed" = "sangrar".

I've also heard "bleed something white" for "cause the exhaustion of all the resources of something," such as in a siege, and for "drain all the life from something," which the original graphically suggests .

According to http://www.wordreference.com/definition/bleed, "bleed" is both a verb and a noun.

The verb "bleed" is used a lot more often than the noun "bleed". As a noun it usually means "an instance of bleeding", and it often is synonymous with "hemorrhage". "Bleed" is a less-formal term. A "nosebleed" is a common type of bleed.
