Translating from English to Spanish is different from case to case depending on many factors. A Spanish word could have one meaning in one region and a different translation in another region. There can be more than one correct Spanish translation of English words, as words can have varying meanings conditional of what context they are put in. A technical Spanish translation may vary strongly from a medical Spanish translation, which is why the English-Spanish dictionary includes several interpretations.
