    I do not know Spanish but I keep going to the Spanish thread and try to figure out what is being said? It's fun! Does anyone else do this or am i just weird?

    also my serve has a Spanish translator and I tried to use it but it only translated some of what is being said on the thread.

    It's like in any country- there are various dialects and slang. Doesn't mean one is more "proper" than the other. Your son is probably referring to Castilian Spanish, spoken in Spain. There's a lot of lisping in Castilian.

    I speak Spanish with influences of Ecuador, Chile, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Mexico, but anyone who speaks ANY form of Spanish can understand me and be understood by me. I dream in Spanish fairly often.

    As far as the browser not translating all Spanish it most likely is a word that has no english equivalency or does not recognise the slang, who knows?
