Correct Spanish terminology is the key to quality Spanish translations. Terms are not only industry and sometimes company specific, but their translation can also vary according to the locale of the target language.  For example, the word "computer" translates into "ordenador" in Spanish for Spain, but into "computadora" in Spanish for Latin America.

The automotive term "bumper" is translated as "neumático" in Spain, "llanta" in Mexico, "goma" in Puerto Rico, and "caucho" in Venezuela.
