Spanish is becoming more and more important in the daily life of any modern student or worker. Whether to answer an email, check a website or read documentation about almost any topic, we need to have some basic Spanish knowledge as it's the third most used language in the world, with over 500 million native speakers.
But, what happens if we're not good at languages? Well, while you start learning at language school you can get along with a desktop English-Spanish translator as is the case of this English-Spanish Interpreter. You'd never have guessed what it's all about with such a name.

Which is the best offline English-Spanish translator?

To tell the truth, we wouldn't recommend its use to anyone other than to translate trivial sentences to pull a girl or guy on Tinder, answer an informal email, understand the lyrics of Julio Iglesias' songs or manage to understand yourself with your Erasmus mate.
If you need to translate an important document, whether a cover letter, your CV or a university project, not even Google's solution is 100% reliable. Automatic translators are absolute rubbish, so don't forget that there are people out there who have studied a Degree in Translation for a reason.
