comment What is the best way to find out if a book is available in Spanish?
Thanks; oddly enough, when I searched for "Soledad Brother: Cartas de Prisión" on AbeBooks.com, it didn't find it at first; however, when I changed the last word from "Prisión" to "Prision" it did find it - yet the page displays the title with the "ó"!

comment What musical instrument is “bateria”?
You're right - that works right off the bat (as does bing), whereas translate.com, also powered by google, failed ignominiously.

Thanks; I adapted your translation, and am using it here (this will be the image associated with an upcoming Kickstarter project): dropbox.com/s/9eqxx0t94pakzcp/TwainEnglishSpanish2.jpg

I don't know Spanish very well yet, but I think I get your point, which all multilingualists do but few monolinguists do, namely that "automatic" translating is a very rough and raw and minimally effective tool. The phrase "knows just enough to be dangerous" comes to mind.

comment C as K and S and silent (rules of thumb for pronunciation of C?)
This is for Spain, right (the "th" sound)? Not Mexico?
