Francisco Hidalgo, Lourdes De Rioja & Alan Rodger created this online False Friends dictionary. The dictionary is for students and/or professionals who are ever uncertain about the meaning of words in English that sound very similar to others in Spanish.
This dictionary translates only words, not expressions, and does not include all those that can be mistranslated. It translates only what are known as false friends; that is, words that appear to be identical or similar but have different meanings.
There are three ways in which you can use the dictionary:
1- You can enter your word in our dictionary search field, and you will immediately see the meaning in Spanish;
2- You can look for the word in the alphabetical list; and/or
3- You can enter your English text, and they will show you the false friends it contains, so you can click on the false friend to read the explanation.
You can find all the information about the dictionary at https://www.falsefriends.org/
You can watch the launch YouTube video in Spanish here.
