recipe translation, English to Spanish

Anyone know of an online source to translate a couple of my recipes into Spanish? Or if you're interested in helping me out with translation, let me know. I can pay you in cookies.

I have done entire conversations here, it's great. You may have to do in pieces but it works. Try it! http://translation.babylon...

If you can't find a site or anyone specifically from the community, my husband would probably be willing to do it! He lived in Mexico and Central America for a while, so his Spanish is really good, though that was like 10 years ago now, so it is also slightly rusty. :)

Can't help on Spanish, but should you need Italian...
Be wary of machine translators, the results can be unintentionally hilarious.

They can be absurdly hilarious! I had a friend who would use google translate to try to write me emails in Norwegian, and I almost always found myself in tears laughing at the notes because they were so funny.

Thanks so much, you guys. I really need an actual human. I've been down the google translate path and it's hilarious! Dona, I'll message you through the website. Emily, you're on stand by, if that's okay.

Back in the day before machine translators Mark Twain translated his short story "The Jumping Frog of Calaveras County" into French and then from the French back into English. The result was screamingly funny.

MrsLarkin, I sent the recipe to my son, and spoke to him. He said no problem. I'll send it on when he emails it back.

I emailed your recipe this morning. My son, who translated, likes to cook and said he's going to try your recipe.

Too bad I'm late to the party!!!I actually find "Google Tradutor" very helpful sometimes when I need some spell checking.You just need to have some patience and good judgement...and...full knowlege of the two languages involved so you won't make a fool of yourself,hahaha!Soooo,being the cookie monster that I am,if you still need some help,this Brazilian girl over here(whose forefathers were from Spain and Argentine)would be so glad to offer you an uninterested hand...no interest at all for the already mentioned cookies!It all came from my heart,hahaha!
