Best online translation site for menu Spanish?

Working near Salamanca CL, and finding relatively few of the restaurants have menus with English.

Thinking a hand scanner for those who don't want to give up a copy, then a few minutes with Google, unless there's one that's better at foodie jargon translation.

    Best online translation? For food? None. Here's a link to a list of food words and there are other such pages out there but even so some food translations are very difficult: http://www.lingolex.com/spanishfood/a...

      I found this one years ago.

      Try this
      http://www.gomadrid.com/dict/spanish-...

      I also have a pretty good excel spreadsheet i have compiled my self if I can figure out how to get it to you ..... I am not responsible for any mistakes or mispellings, but it has 466 words/terms that have gotten me through 9 vacations in spain!

        I think this is the best one out there: http://www.iberianature.com/spainblog...

        Though it's a little catalonia-centric and gets some things wrong in other regions.
