    Default The Best English-Spanish Translation Out There

    After trying almost every Spanish resource site out there, I have to say that spanishdict.com is the most comprehensive. They've got Spanish-English translation, and lots of great lesson material.

    HI Arielle,

    Don't know about just one or two words translation but I tried the translator for a sentence and the result was very funny. It was Tarzan-like talking.
    this is what I wrote
    I have been here eating the same for two days
    and this was the translation
    He estado aquí comer la misma durante dos días
    Anyway, thanks so much for your information and perhaps the site is useful for single words translation. And regarding the best English-Spanish translation out there, that can only be achieved by a real, professional translator. And of course, this is a translator talking , we must defend our "job".
    Thanks again for the information. Have a great day!

    Agree!

    The dictionaries only work for translate one word, not even a phrase. Humberto Eco has a very interesting and fun analysis in one of his books.
