Total confusion about "se"

When SE is used in a sentance, how kan we know if it referes to a "he" or a "she"??

Examples taken from your grammer:

Prepara la carne para el = Preparasela = Prepare it (the meat) for HIM

Firmen el documento para ella = Firmenselo = Sign it (the document) for HER

Hola Odd

When "se" is used instead of "le" referring to "[to] him/her" as an indirect object pronoun it could be referring to both him or her so the only way to know is by the context.
