272.  Subject: Translation question for you 

I am having problems this morning trying to locate a free web site that will translate English to Spanish. I want to double check some of my verb tenses to rehearse for a second interview this Wednesday. Can you offer any help?  Thank you.

ANSWER:

Usually, English-Spanish dictionaries, or Spanish dictionaries provide --in the introductory pages-- a rather lengthy summary of key grammatical points, or a key to certain grammatical points, like verb conjugations, which might help you review your past tense forms, especially for irregular verbs.  Any Spanish grammar book probably lists many of the regular and irregular past tense forms of Spanish verbs.  

We hope to have in the near future some helping tools which we have developed to master Spanish verb forms.   Check with us soon!!!   THANKS!!!
