comment Is there a software utility available that allows simultaneous reading of Spanish and English material?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about software, not about Spanish language and its usage.

comment Analysis and Translation of the song “Mientras duermen los niños” by Jose Luis Perales
Welcome to Spanish.SE! Unfortunately, your question is out of the scope of the site as it is not related to Spanish language usage. You could try asking in a Spanish speaking forum.

comment Spanish for “belly”
Yes, "tripa" can mean "panza" as well in Spain. It's typical for kids to say "me duele la tripa" for bellyache.

comment In what region/country do they pronounce the 'r' at end of Spanish infinitive as 'sh'?
After having seen her in the video, I think it's just she can't pronounce that sound correctly.

Los títulos académicos no tienen equivalencias en idiomas en sí, si no en países, ya que cada país tiene su propio sistema académico.

Hay muchísimas novelas en los que el nombre del personaje es muy relevante puesto que significa algo en el original y que si no se traducen pierde bastante.

comment Uso de “promedio” como adjetivo
If it were an adjective, it would be "promedias". You are using "promedio" as a substantive.

comment Comprehensive Irregular Verb Conjugation Rules?
I see know what you mean. I have never seen charts like that. The common thing is to point to another irregular verb of that group stating that they have the same conjugation rules, and of course, show how this other verb is conjugated. For example, for the verb "hervir", although a conjugation is provided, it also says that it is conjugated like "sentir".

@deStrangis it actually seems that it's already a translation, probably from an online service :D

Is this an expression meaning something figuratively, or it's literally the how much darkness there is, eg. in a room?

comment How to translate “have a crush on somebody”?
I wouldn't use "enamorado" for "crush" in Spain, as it has the meaning of being in love, which is different from a crush. The same goes for the rest of sentences, they have their own translation to English and each of them give a different touch to the meaning of liking someone.

comment I have had a great night with you
The last example would be also polite, for example if it's the first night you date a person and it's too soon to be informal.

comment ¿Cuál es el origen de los nombres de los números?
No "pasó" nada en español, simplemente se adaptó fonéticamente lo que se venía diciendo para cada número en latín, lo mismo que en el resto de lenguas romances.
