Operative?

Hola,
Quisiera decir "operative" en español en el sentido de un espía con la habilidad especializada.

Hmm. No llego a la parabra/expresión correcta

Gracias de antemano por las sugerencias

Gracias Especifícamente se refiere a una persona en un camión escondido con monitores y aparatos electronicos. En inglés diríamos algo como "field operative" o "field technician"...

¿Como los de las películas (el camión de helados que en realidad es un puesto donde se ve y escucha lo que se dice en la casa de enfrente)?

De ésos no hay "oficialmente" por aquí, así que difícilmente tendrían un nombre, pero "espía técnico" tal vez sería suficientemente explícito.

Exacto

Quizás técnico sería suficiente. En contexto su papel exacto probablemente será claro. Gracias

Sí, sin contexto es sólo un tiro al blanco.
¿Métodos técnicos operativos?

In Spanish as well as in English operative=operativo = that operates.

In the context you've given, as Angélica said, it can be anything because we would take it as the name of the position. I think it could be said the same for the English name, but in English it works both ways. To say that someone or something is operative, and the position of the person.

It could've been 'operator' for all I know.
