    I need to add Spanish to my room labels, but I can't find many of them, the online translators I tried don't come up with some. I know in Spanish 2 words are generally the noun "de" the describer I believe, but I don't know if that's for all of these or if there are actual one word translations.

    Can anybody help me translate the following or know a good spot to check? Thanks in advance

    bear counters
    brick blocks
    bristle blocks
    clipboards
    colored pencils
    color links

    Try this.

    http://translation2.paralink.com/

    You can keep proper nouns the same. The articles are "El," "La," and "Los" (singular masculine, singular feminine, and plural).

    For "Bear counters," for example, I wouldn't try to be too specific, I'd just call them bears, "Los osos."

    This site will pronounce words for you:

    I don't speak Spanish, but I have used several web translators to compare. None of them are perfect, but my ESL parents like it that I try to communicate with them.

    One is in the new MicroSoft Word program.

    I've also used www.freetranslation.com (this one will do approx. one page of written text)
    and http://babelfish.yahoo.com/ (this one does up to 150 words)
