I need something that I can type in a phrase, not a word, but a whole phrase a sentence in english and it gives it back to me in Spanish.
This website shows a Spanish to English dictionary that looks like it's a translator as well. Is that even possible?http://www.franklin.com/estore/dictionary/DBE-1470/What's the difference between a Spanish translator and a Spanish Dictionary?
In a dictionary you can only search small words and sometimes compound words. You have to know the rest on how to make sense of sentences.
An online translator uses some computer algorythms to translate from one language onto another one, but it usually fails doing it correctly. Computers just can't imitate the human mind, specially when it comes to languages.
The website you've provided is a dictionary, though it has some other interesting features: phrases, a verb conjugator and a small grammar guide. But if you put complete sentences you won't get them translated.
dictonary...more reliable...What's the difference between a Spanish translator and a Spanish Dictionary?
its what you need
and dictionary you search for a specific wordWhat's the difference between a Spanish translator and a Spanish Dictionary?
Franklin makes some good products.
What you NEED, is a REAL dictionary...like the ones printed by Harper/Collins, or University of Chicago, or Langenscheidt's. Don't go with the one by Vox. it's all screwy! It gives the least realistic translation first.
But, then, isn't what you need done, the reason that you are taking Spanish class in the first place? So that YOU will be able to transate whole phrases? NO machine can really do that for you. It needs the human element of a real, communicative BRAIN.
