IE-6 terms in Spanish <> English 
Last update 22 Aug 2005

This lexicon is to help non-Spanish speakers who need to use internet cafes where the computers speak Spanish.  If you see missing commands that should be included, or if you find errors, I'd sure like to hear from you.  e-mail me at


Keys often missing on a Spanish keyboard:

' (apostrophe) = ALT 0146 

@ (at) = ALT 64



These terms were taken from English and Spanish editions of MS Internet Explorer v6.

Note that some of the terms are not literal translations, for example home = inicio, and should not be confused with regular translations such as home = casa.

Words marked * open a window where changes can be made that will affect the operation of the browser.  These windows have not been translated because the manager of the cafe is not likely to be enthusiastic about your messing with these things.
