This English-Spanish dictionary complements the Spanish-English dictionary available on this site. The English-Spanish entries come from various sources:

  • entries for common English words are hand-compiled;
  • entries for some less common words are automatically compiled by computer from the Spanish-English side of the dictionary;
  • technical phrases are included from the European Union's DGT Glossaries.

Typing past tenses, declined forms etc

In many cases, the dictionary understands past tense forms and other declined forms. Thus, you can type went instead of go, had instead of have etc. Not all declined forms are understood, so if possible, it is sometimes better to enter the "base" form of the word. The dictionary's ability to recognise declined forms is continually being improved.
