English To Spanish Translation

Are you traveling to a Spanish speaking country? Actually, are you traveling to any country where the native language is not English? Want to know how to say a few words in the language of the country you'll be visiting?

I use TravLang, a great resource site that offers a whole bunch of free options for the traveler.

There is an on-line translating dictionary. Use the drop down menu to pick the starting and destination language, type in the word you want translated and Click. There is also a text translation tool and a website translation tool.

I use this site for every trip to a non English speaking country. Inside our luggage tags is a folded piece of paper that has on it our itinerary and our contact information. On the outside I have "If luggage is lost, please open this paper and deliver according to the itinerary inside" in both English and, with the help of TravLang, in the language of the country we'll be visiting.
