Welcome to Craftster's English-Spanish Dictionary!
Bienvenidos al Diccionario Inglés-Español de Craftster!


The purpose of this dictionary is to help out the Spanish speakers who might be having some trouble following the general conversation in English, given that this is the one and only official language on Craftster.
El propósito de este diccionario es ayudar a los hispanohablantes que puedan estar teniendo algunas dificultades para seguir la conversación general en inglés, dado que éste es el único idioma oficial en Craftster.

Yeah, I was thinking about doing it, but being new and all I still haven't got into those Craftster member habits. I'll do it now.
Oh, and please if you can help me out with the crafts I'm not so acquaintanced with, it'd be great!

Sí, estaba pensado hacerlo, pero siendo nueva y eso, aún no he adoptado esos hábitos de miembro de Craftster. Lo voy a hacer ahora.
Ah, y si por favor me puedes ayudar con los "crafts" que no conozco tanto, sería genial!

I posted this request attatched to another post, but thought this would also be a good post to ask...

We are having housekeeping appreciation week at the hotel where I work this week, and I am making little pamper packs for this housekeepers.  I was wondering if anyone would be willing to translate the directions and the thank you note for me into Spanish.  Also, is there really a HUGE difference in the Spanish I learned in high school and mexican spoken spanish?  I know slang and some words are different, but as a whole?  Some of the girls speak very limited English, so I wanted to make sure to personalize their thank yous into Spanish.  Thanks in advance for any help.  I thought about babblefish or another site, but in experimenting, found that they do really horrible translations lol
