WEB sites translating letters into Spanish #general

Being fluent in Spanish, I should caution that such literal translationstoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
sometimes result in very unusual language, to say the least, though I
realize such a Web Site feature IS certainly better than nothing.
I tried the Web Site Stephen Mednick mentioned (see below) using the English
text that he wrote in the posting. The result was a Spanish translation
that, though understandable (especially since I had read the English version
and knew what to expect), produced some strange phrasing and grammar. It
takes words and produces a literal translation, instead of taking phrases at
a time. Spanish doesn't lend itself to such literal translations.
But like I said before, it does at least produce a result that is readable,
though I caution, not in all cases, depending on the intricacy of the
original English text.
